Will my fibroids still be a problem after menopause?


Not necessarily, your fibroids won’t be a problem after menopuase, but if you are taking supplements, hormonal supplements, then there is the estrogen that feeds that the fibroid and that potentially can get the fibroid to grow. So it’s the hormones that make the fibroid go. So if you are not on any replacement then it’s unusual to have fibroids be a problem after menopause.

In fact a lot of the gynecologists would say if you’re very close to menopause do not do anything so that when you reach menopause there’s no hormones it will settle down and you wont have a period, but that’s not always true these days, there’s a lot of replacements and other things that come into play.
