What Are Fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are benign growths that can form in the smooth muscle tissue of the uterus and are the most common form of non-cancerous tumors afflicting women during childbearing years. Also known as a leiomyoma (leiomyomata), fibroid tumors often occur in groups. While they often show no symptoms, uterine fibroids can cause pain during sexual intercourse or menstruation and affect urinary tendencies. Fibroids and pregnancy can have implications; though these symptoms are rare, fibroids can increase the chance of miscarriage, cause bleeding, premature labor, and affect the position of the fetus. The pressure that fibroids may place on the rest of the body can cause gastrointestinal issues like constipation, bloating, and even infertility.
Fibroids are common, 3 out of 4 women will experience them in their lives. However, they do not often require treatment and often women do not experience fibroid symptoms that affect them at all. When fibroids cause pain or excessive bleeding they should be treated.

I have read so much about your site. I just want to ask just one question. I have Adenomyosis,
(A 7CM Adneomyoma of the uterus). It was shown on the pelvic sono as a fibroid. I went to another doctor and took an MRI, shows that I have Adenomyosis, of course I do have few 1.4 cm fibroids. This is on the right side of me and never hurts. For years I have been having pain on my left side where a Adenomyosis was found. I took to a holistic ND, who said for me not to drink green tea, because green tea has caffeine and this makes fibroids grow more. She said to drink red raspberry tea. I am confused, because on your site, there are talks about green tea being good for fibroids. I used to drink decaffeinted with (4% caffeine). Ted Please let me know any suggestion to shrink Adenomyosis. This is a growth inside of the uterus, the opposite of Endometroisis. I was told that enzyme breaks up fibroids tissue. Please let me know your suggesttion of these growths on the uterus. Adenomyosis is a thickening of the uterus.
