I’ve been told a lot of lies in my life. “Heavy periods and painful periods are perfectly normal”, they said, and “having crazy mood swings that impact your personal relationships are also normal!” I’ve been led to believe that it’s a Woman’s curse to experience these things.

What are Fibroids?
A diagnosis of uterine fibroids can be a scary thing, but it does not necessarily mean what you think. Fibroids are tumors, but they are almost always non-cancerous. Ninety-seven percent of the time, they do not even have an impact on fertility. It is a common problem that affects many women. They are most likely to be found in your childbearing years (20s and 30s) but they can be diagnosed at any time. It is, however, rare for this diagnosis to take place after menopause.
