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.

I came across this site yesterday, and I was looking for a natural way to deal with my fibroids, especially since I believe I have at least two. Anyways, I did spot off and on for at least four days. The last day was the worst due to it being slightly heavier than the previous three.
In the past, I had an ovarian cyst that burst, and the doctor cleaned me out when he also took out my appendix, so I probably have scar tissue in that part of my body. The pain I was having was similar to the past, and since I'm in my 30s, it made logical sense for me to assume that it was fibroids. Well, this is definitely the case. Below are my results within 24 hours.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar worked for me, especially with having it diluted with water. I have not had any spotting thus far.
2. Grape Juice has also helped in cleansing my body. This did make my fibromyalgia kick in, so I cannot intake a lot because of it.
3. I have increased energy, and I feel so much better.
4. Ordered the Apple Cider Vinegar pills that will be taken with water (as a back up). Usually 500 mg is equivalent to 2 Tbsp. a day.
Thank you again for your recommendations. You prevented me from having another surgery and decreasing my chances of getting cancer when older. Blessings.
I've always had heavy menstrual cycles. After I had a tubal ligation after the birth of my 2nd child they were much heavier. Super Plus tampon and maxi pad soaked every 1 to 2 hours for 3 days. Over the last year it's gotten really really bad. I felt better after reading other posts and seeing I was not alone. I don't leave the house for 4 to 5 days during my cycle and soak through in 5 to 15 minutes with clots ranging from golf ball to grapefruit size. The last couple of months I've been feeling pressure above my pelvic bone and the area is as hard as a rock. This cycle I had almost no flow. 3 pads only in 3 days but the pressure was intense. I felt like I was going to explode. I don't have insurance and was going to break down and go into debt on Monday to go to the clinic because I was really getting scared. Took a dose of ACV last night after reading all of the posts on the fibroid page. Took another this morning along with a couple of TB of black strap molasses. 3 hours later and I'm now flowing heavily with clots bigger than I've ever seen in my life. While it may not sound like a success because now I'm bleeding most of the pressure is gone and my the hardness has decreased dramatically. I'll keep doing the ACV daily and report back next month on wether my flow lessens or not. Thanks for sharing such sensitive personal info. I've been to so many doctors who have just told me not to worry every woman is different. I thought for sure I was going to have to have surgery. Now I'm hopeful.

6/2006 I found out that I was pregnant and diagnosed with 3 large fibroid tumors. I miscarriage at 7 month term then returned to the hospital a month later to remove the tumors. Over the years since my surgery I had weight gain (60lbs), heavy menstural cycles last sometimes up to 8 days, severe anemic, severe constipation so I decided to see my obgyn 8/3/2012.He ordered a ultra sound of the abdomen and pelvis. A week later I was told that my tumors has returned (6) and they are larger then prior. I was advised the only option would be a hysterectomy. I'm 39 years old and no kids so I decide to research online for cures to prevent surgery.
I have been taking 2 tsps twice a day of ACV with the mother since 10/4 and I now have a normal cycle. I have lost 59lbs have changed my eating habits whole wheat, lots of vegetables, baked/broil chicken and fish, cut out all sugars including drinks and fast food, drink 8 glasses of H20 daily and exercise occasionally. My before weight was 298lbs and currently I weigh 239. I have my iron under control and I feel wonderful. I visit my obgyn two weeks ago and he scheduled another ultrasound just got my results back and he and the staff was amazed that no tumors exist on the ultra sound. I was so happy to hear the great news but I know to maintain future occurences I will have to take care of myself. I continue to take ACV daily and I just wanted to share my story here and hope that my story can be a help to others. Also I prayed constantly daily because I know at the end of the day God has the last say.

Hello ladies, I am a 52 year young lady who has fibroids also. Last week I started taking Apple Cider Vinegar and raw honey to help with weight lost and what ever other benefit I can get. I have not had a cycle in about 2 months, so today all of a sudden I started cramping and realized that I have large clots. Does any one know if this could be from the Apple Cider Vinegar and honey?
Hi: I have been diagnosed with several fibroids. Seems like surgery is the only opcion according to the doctor. I did some research and I found your webpage. I started the apple cider cure about 2 months ago, I do it 3 times a day but so far I haven't see any relief (the only thing is I am not so tired now). I still feel the fibroids and I have pain. I am taking normal apple cider vinager (we don't have fancy stuff or organic things). My question is: is this cure for real?, I am sort of dissapointed. Thank you.
Should I take ACV on a daily basis or during menstruation only? I want to know which is more effective? First of all, allow me to thank you for this bery helpful website. I come across this website after I had my D & C procedure last Sept. 1, 2012. Prior to that, I was heavily bleeding for a month last August, that's why mt OBGYM opted for a D & C procedure to stop the bleeding. After the procedure, my doctor suggested that I should undergo an operation for my fibroids. She said that I will still be bledding every month during my period. I told her to postpone the operation.
Meantime, I was looking for an alternative ways and means. After many research, I come across this wedsite. From then, I started taking ACV diluted in a glass of water every morning and evening until now. Had my period last week, there were 2 days of heavy flow with big clots. (was a bit panic, took hemostan tablets to stop the bleeding). The flow subsided and my period stop last night. Waiting for comments. Thanks.
I truly don't believe it was an accident when I stumbled across this website the other night. I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids about four years ago after noticing some changes with my menstrual cycle. After this finding, I went on a research rampage to learn all I could about these tumors that were invading my body. Long story short, I was told of the many evasive treatment options that only seem to provide short term relief (if at all).
I'm 41 years old and at a breaking point with this condition. I went from having periods that lasted 5 days to cyles lasting 7 days.. Sometimes 8. Instead of every 28 days, it comes about every 20. There were times when I had two cycles in one month. Its out of control.
Anyway, after reading a lot of the testimonials on here, I decided to give this a try. What do I have to lose right? I am currently taking 2 teaspoons of the vinegar w/ 8 oz of water, twice a day. I started taking it while I was on the second day of my menstrual.
I have only been taking it for three days so far and I have noticed a decrease in bleeding around day three of my cycle. Which usually slows around the fourth or fifth day. The pressure and pain had subsided as well. So far, it seems to be doing something.
I will continue to use this remedy and watch for even more significant changes. Does anyone have any sugesstions on whether or not to take the Apple Cider Vinegar with food? Thank you for allowing me to share my story. I wish you all wellness. I will keep you all posted.

I have suffered subserosal fibroids along with endometriosis and endo cyst in the left ovary for 5 years, the pain used to be crippling but I was given prostap injections along with mirena coil and it worked wonders. 5 years on and all hell has broken out. I have absolutely no pain but the fibroid and cyst started to flare up again, I was given another round of prostap which has shrunk the cyst slightly but teh fibroids have remained the same. They are not keen on giving me a hysterctomy as they said it was too dangerous. I am currently taken a herbal rememdy of Angus Cactus and Female Essence but have seen no difference. Would the ACV work in reducing the fibroids or is it only effective if you are having bleeding as well?
I NEED SOMEONE TO HELP ME. I HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH FIBROIDS FOR OVER 6 YEARS ALL THE DOCTORS WANT TO DO IS CUT ME UP. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. I TOOK THE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AND MY PERIOD CAME DOWN WORSE THAN BEFORE AND LASTED LONGER MAYBE I DID NOT TAKE THE RIGHT DOSAGE SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW MUCH I AM SUPPOSE TO TAKE AND HOW MUCH WATER. THANKS LADY D

I've Fibroids too, heavy did normal periods this month. I was crying last night because I went to the bathroom and its still here and yesterday was my 8 day. I got up out of bed and by the Gods will found this site. When I read about acv, I said to myself no this is not that easy. So i got from the computer went into the kitchen 2tsp of acv. 2 hours past light. While, this is real 6 hours past gone, I have a gas problem I also notice that the Apple Cider Vinegar help me on that too. Thanks
will Apple Cider Vinegar tablets work the same? I can't deal with the taste it makes me gag. If so, would anyone know how many miligrams?
I have tried to submit this a couple of times. I'm not sure if I have been successful or not. Will try one more time. I don't as a rule respond to online testimonials. However, I am very aware that the ACV I have been consuming the past couple months is worthy of a serious mention here. I suffer with uterine fibroids. And at 46 yrs old, the doctor wanted to apply watchful waiting to see if they would start to shrink once menopause hit me. My mom didn't go into menopause til her mid 50's so I was not about to wait that long for relief. Besides, the pain, flooding, fatigue, clots and not being able to leave my toilet has been getting progressively worse over the past couple years. I'm a lead singer in a rock band and I can recall recent gigs that I did where I was bleeding so heavy, I had to wear a flippin bladder pad (and black clothes) to simply get through an hrs worth of performing before our set break when I could run to the can and fix things up for another hour. Very embarrasing. But there have been even more embarrasing moments let me tell you. (sad face)
I first read about apple cider vinegar on this site, and if it weren't for the many many believable testimonials, I probably would have laughed it off. But after taking this miracle juice for the past 2 months. I feel I really have to contribute my story. I always believed most testimonials were crap that were written by fakers trying to sell their product. However, there is nothing anyone can gain here except relief from the shared knowledge. So I am happy to add my story. Hope it helps one or more of you.
My fibroids which the doc claimed were few and very small (and shouldn't be causing me any distress) made my life a living hell. Periods were 5 to 7 days of gushing blood and clots. Clots so big I swore I was miscarrying. I had many days each month where I sat on the toilet with my laptop. Afraid to even get up. If I did, I gave birth to another huge painful to pass clot. My breasts were always sore a week before my period, during and sometimes after for a couple days. I blew threw maxi pads in less than an hr, and the pain and fatigue was terrible. Sex and penetration was also becoming very painful. I started taking regular Heinz store brand ACV 2 months ago. I will go to the health food store and pick up some higher end stuff now that I know it works well for me.
The first thing I noticed on month 1 was zero PMS, my period literally snuck up on me. No breast swelling or tenderness the whole period. Wha? I'll take it! Period was what I would deem as normal. It has been so many years since having a normal period, I almost didn't recognize it. I passed 1 small clot and barely even noticed. Period slowed by day 4 and by then I was no longer wearing any sanitary protection. Wow... Just Wow! Pain was manageable. Still took a couple advil once or twice during the heavier period days. But used to take 10 advil a day for 7 days. What a difference! The biggest shock was the absence of the gushing. Sorry TMI but no way to really explain this properly without being frank. Seriously... Gushing was gone. Clotting all but gone. That cycle, I did a stage show with my band and wore a WHITE dress. Haha never would have been that brave before. Waited another month to see if I was just as fortunate before posting my findings here. Happy Happy happy to report that I just finished another period that was as easy and managable as last months. Oh happy day! Again one very small clot. No gushing. I am taking 2 tbsp of ACV twice a day in a bottle of water which I drink down fast a few mins before meals. I was also surprised and thrilled to note that the last 20 lbs that I have been struggling to lose (I am a zero to low carber) have been coming off since taking ACV. Seems as if water weight is the first to go. I'll take that thank you very much!! Lol
I don't know if the ACV is shrinking my fibroids so soon. I hope it is. And will ask for an ultrasound sometime this next year to see whats happening with them. But what I do know for sure. Is the pain, distress, and emotional upheaval I experienced with each and every period for the past 7 years is now all but gone away. I would have tried the Black strap molasses, but when I read the carton how many carbs and calories are in there... Ummm nope, not for this kid!
I hope someone out there who is a skeptic like me, reads this, and gives it a whirl. What do you have to lose anyway? I was slowly losing my mind and my sex life before this. Should mention that the pain from sex hasn't yet gone away, but it is less noticeable. I suspect the fibroids are pressing on my cervix, bladder and intestines. Thanks for reading my lil story. Sammy

Dear Fibroid Sisters:
Please email me soon, as I am in desperate times with my doctor. She is wanting me to do surgery since my fibroid has grown fm 9cm to 13 cm in the past couple years. Please eamil if your fibroid is at 9cm or bigger and you had good results w/proof that you did go to get an mri done and your fibroid has shrunk after taking ACV with any other stuffs. Or if you done something else naturally to shrink your fibroids.
What size was your fibroid before it shrunk? What size it is now? how long did it take to shrink to the size it is? What are you eating? Is it all organic foods?
HOW ABOUT PLASTICS? Anyone can email me on this subject as well. I know I keep hearing and seeing to not use plastic. That would be crazy.... Everything is in plastic. Meats wrapped in plastic. Fruits and produce wrapped in plastic. I have plastic food containers I used all my life.... So I have to go and get all GLASSWARE to store all foods now? I even email Zephyrhills water and they said the plastic bottle they use are safe to drink from. Its just so much info to take in and so much plastic around us. Creams. Lotions are in plastic. The dish holder is plastic where I put my dishes after washing them. The shampoo bottles are plastic.... So even the organic products are in plastic containers.... So I don't know what it means to NOT USE PLASTIC?
I know not to microwave my foods in plastic for sure. I try to drink out of glass. Email me if you have answers on PLASTIC usage. But mainly.... Please email me on uterine fibroids. Let me know how you shrunk yours. I so appreciate your time and I can't express how upset/depressed it has caused me on this subject. Please help.
Thank you so much, Maylin
