Do you avoid wearing lighter colors? White clothes getting blood stained can be an embarrassing experience; women suffering from uterine fibroids live with this perplexing feeling every day.
Fibroids are the most common tumors of the female reproductive tract. Although benign, these tumors can present many painful symptoms such as heavy, painful and prolonged menstrual bleeding, frequent urination, pelvic pain and pressure or may cause pain during sex. If left untreated these symptoms can lead to more serious complications such as anemia (iron deficiency) leading to tiredness and fatigue.
BDG Media Inc., interviewed several women experiencing heavy menstrual bleeding due to uterine fibroids and the responses were touching:
“There are so many days where I have to use sick time to stay home because I know that I am likely to get heavy clotting that will result in overflow. I often wake up in the middle of the night to find out that my tampon has leaked all over my bed. I can’t really go out for fun during my period because I know I am going to bleed through my clothes or need to go to the bathroom every half hour to change my tampon just in case.” Jodie, 26
“ I was constantly stressed out about my period. My flow was so heavy I had to set alarms during the middle of the night to change my pad, and my clothes would still get stained. I was going through 4, sometimes 5, pads a day.” Carly 20.
“The first day of my period I cancelled all my activities and stayed at home and bleed.” Sara 26.
At USA Fibroid Centers our interventional radiologists have helped thousands of women suffering from heavy, painful and prolonged menstrual bleeding caused by symptomatic fibroids. We utilize a minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment for fibroids during which a tiny image guided catheter is used to block blood supply to the fibroid tumors causing the tumor to shrink in size. A majority of women experience a great relief in their symptoms after this treatment. Their menstrual periods become shorter and lighter and other symptoms gradually disappear as well.
If you are suffering from heavy periods and fibroid pain call (855) 667 4247 to schedule a consultation with our interventional radiologists. Treatments at USA Fibroid Centers are covered by most insurance plans.
After a UFE treatment you don’t have to be afraid of wearing lighter clothes anymore and can live without pain or embarrassment.
