Chronic pain and extensive bleeding, every month for more than 15 years. All of the doctors I went to said the only treatment is to remove my uterus. I was devastated, especially because you know how an operation starts, but you never know how it’s going to end. I always thought there must be another way, in which I could keep all the organs I was born with.
And then one day, on the back page of the paper, I saw an ad about a new non-invasive procedure and of course I was counting the hours until the end of the weekend when I could phone the number. The treatment itself wasn’t painful; I even slept a bit on the MRI bed while they were doing the ultrasound. Today, my uterus, which made me look like I was 4 months pregnant, has returned to its regular size and most importantly, it is still intact and inside my body. No urgent sprints to the ladies room. No more pain, no extensive bleeding. It was a good idea not to give up my uterus. My name is Idit and I don’t have Uterine Fibroids anymore.
