Hi Simone Fibroids are caused by oxidative stress, so large amounts of antioxidants are needed to reverse them. The foremost one being vitamin D. There's evidence a lack causes them, it certainly shrinks them, see here, here, here, here, here and here. You live in Australia so probably have a low level, please have a test done. For more info on vitamin D levels, test kits etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth and Birmingham Hospital. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml (175-250nmol/L) and not the 30ng/ml (75nmol/L) most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although recent research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. Too low an amount of progesterone will make them grow, as it stimulates oestrogen. Oestrogen causes cells to proliferate, plus it's an inflammatory hormone. I would suggest no less than 200mg/day progesterone, possibly more, it's dependant on how much oestrogen is circulating, and what other symptoms you have. Please see our page on How to use progesterone cream. For testimonials, which I don't keep, please use our search bar and enter fibroids. Take care Wray
