Understanding Your Treatment Options for Uterine Fibroids

Most doctors suggest that women with uterine fibroids (also known as leiomyomas or myomas) get regular checkups to monitor any changes to these noncancerous growths. For those who experience severe symptoms, however, treatment options range from medication to surgery. Each woman is different, and uterine fibroids affect individuals in different ways. If periods are painful because of fibroids, women might be advised to use over-the-counter painkillers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Laparoscopic myomectomy removes fibroids through a small incision below the abdomen and usually requires two to seven days of recovery.
