Non-surgical Treatment for Uterine Fibroids
Dr. Rafael Perez, Medical Director of the Center for Women and Infants at South Miami Hospital, explains the idea of treatments is going from least invasive to most invasive. They start with simple things, such as hormonal treatments that include birth control pills and progesterone. Then, they go to a little bit more invasive procedure such as intrauterine devices.
He also says those devices are usually used for contraception, but there’s one that has some medication in it and can be placed inside the uterus, and that would be to control the bleeding. They do not address the fibroids themselves, they are just addressing the symptoms of bleeding and the pain.
