1. Targets for the treatment of uterine fibroids
The goal of the treatment of uterine fibroids is to alleviate the symptoms that affect the patient's life such as abnormal hemorrhages, pain, symptoms caused by uterine fibroids pinching neighboring organizations,…
Treatment of uterine fibroids can be by follow-up, medical treatment or surgical surgery of uterine fibroids. The choice of how to intervene depends on the condition of each patient, based on the following factors:
- Size and location of uterine fibroids
- Accompanying symptoms (menstruation, bleeding, compression, pain, infertility)
- Patient aspirations and abilities (cost, convenience, desire to preserve the uterus, side effects).
2. Cure uterine fibroids with internal medicine
- Gonadotropin-releasing hormone er erm (Gn-RH)
The drug is called Gn-RH ing erging that treats uterine fibroids by blocking the production of estrogen and progesterone, causing you to fall into a temporary post-menopause state. Therefore, when taking the drug will not appear menstruation, uterine fibroids shrink and lead to anemia due to vaginal hemorrhage is often improved. Your treating doctor may prescribe Gn-RH er erging to shrink the size of your fibroid before scheduled uterine fibroid surgery.
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
These are not hormones, which can be effective in reducing pain associated with fibroids, but they do not reduce bleeding caused by fibroids. Your doctor may also recommend vitamins and iron if you have bleeding due to severe bleeding that causes anemia.
- Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen drugs
This is a drug that treats pelvic pain caused by uterine fibroids. If you have menstruation or neurotic neurosis due to uterine fibroids can also take these two drugs because they can replenish iron and help relieve pain.
The use of drugs for uterine fibroids are essentially sex hormones, which are temporarily introduced into the woman's body to inhibit ovulation. The ovaries temporarily do not secrete estrogen, in order to make the tumor smaller (like menopause). After discontinuation of the drug, the ovaries will work again and will stimulate the uterine fibroid to continue to grow.
3. When is uterine fibroid surgery?
For cases of menstruation, prolonged bleeding, fruitless medical treatment, pain, multiple urination and unsymistent small lumps, only followed every 3 months. Uterine fibroid surgery is considered a thorough treatment, especially in the following cases:
- When a large uterine fibroid is equivalent to a uterus about 12 weeks pregnant.
- When there are symptoms of compression of the ureter, causing the kidneys to fluid retention. When there are complications of menopause, hemolysis or prolonged neurotic treatment of internal failure or of fibroids under the mucous membranes.
- When the tumor is in the wide ligament. When cancer is suspected.
3.1. Fibroid peeling surgery
If the patient appears many fibroids, very large fibroids or very deep fibroids, the doctor can operate to remove the fibroid. However, due to post-surgery scarring will affect fertility in the future.
3.2. Uterus shearing
This surgery is the only proven permanent treatment for uterine fibroids. However, a cesarean section is a major surgery.
This surgery will end the woman's ability to have children. In a cirrhosis of the uterus due to fibroids, the person may also be prescribed an ovarian removal. If the ovulation is chosen, the woman will immediately proceed to the menopause, and the next question is whether the patient will take hormone replacement therapy. Most women with uterine fibroids can choose to keep the ovaries.
3.3. Embolism of the uterus artery
Small particles (the cause of embolization) are injected into the arteries that supply blood to the uterus, cutting off blood flow to fibroids, causing them to shrink and die. This technique can be effective in shrinking fibroids and reducing the symptoms they cause. Complications can occur if the blood supply to your ovaries or other bodies is compromised.
The greatest advantage of this method is that it is painless for the person and the person can still get pregnant and give birth normally. This method is in place in case you have weakness, anemia, blood loss and severe iron deficiency, patients with urination, difficulty urinating due to uterine fibroids pressed on the bladder and rectum, and after treatment there is still a desire to give birth.
3.4. Endometrial retriosis
This is a method of uterine fibroid surgery performed with a specialized instrument inserted into your uterus, using heat, microwave energy, hot water or electric current to destroy the lining of the patient's uterus, end menstruation or reduce menstrual flow.
Most often, endometrial restriosis is effective in hematoma. Uterine fibroids can be removed at the time of uterine endoscopy for endometrial removal, but this does not affect fibroids outside the retina or inside the uterus.
