Over 80% of women with African descent suffer or will suffer from fibroids during their lifetime. Those numbers are insanely high. Many doctors suggest hormone therapy and or surgery as a solution. There are approximately over 200,000 hysterectomies performed each year. I am a firm believer that a woman needs all of her internal organs regardless of child bearing. I was recently diagnosed with fibroids 1 large and 1 small. I am determined not to get surgery or have to take prescription pills in order shrink these fibroids.
I’m sharing my story of battling with fibroids in the hope that this will help other. Just know that you are not alone. Even if your doctor has not officially diagnosed you, you can request a vaginal sonogram which will be able to accurately tell whether or not you have fibroids. If you’d like to follow me along my journey you can start by watching my story below. I will also have tons of resources on this blog and my YouTube channel.
