I have uterine fibroids that are painful and bleed alot during intercourse and during my luteal phase. I also display other symptoms such as heavy periods, bad pms mood swings, bloating and cramping (with the spotting) up to 10 days before my period is actually due.
I've tried herbs, acupuncture and a diet change for the last 5 months but the fibroids are becoming more painful.
Both my saliva and blood tests have come back within the normal ranges for a 37 year old woman. So despite displaying classic estrogen dominance/progesterone deficiency my doctor will not prescribe a progesterone cream. You can't buy it over the counter here in OZ.
I have not had kids yet, my partner and I are trying to conceive but to no avail. I am giving it to the end of the year and then I'll look at having them removed via embolization, but I would like to avoid surgery if I can.
