Uterine fibroids are a Gynaecological disorder commonly seen in women of reproductive age. This female disorder affects around 60 to 80% of women and is one of the most under-diagnosed condition. This is mainly because not all women with uterine fibroids develop symptoms. Only a few women with these fibroids develop symptoms like heavy and prolonged periods, back pain, pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, frequent urination and many others. Though uterine fibroids are not dangerous, controlling it is very important to avoid few complications like infertility, anemia due to heavy menstruation and others. This condition can be controlled effectively with Homeopathy and it also helps to prevent the complications of uterine fibroids.

What are Uterine Fibroids?
Uterine fibroids also termed as uterine polyps or uterine myomas are the benign tumors developed in the walls of the uterus. Women can develop single fibroid or may have multiple fibroids and the size of the fibroids can also range from a seedling to a large mass.
