Fibroids are quite common these days in women which causes troublesome issues in them and hinders the chances of successful pregnancy. They need to be dealt in a proper way to avoid causing long term complications. You need to understand that there is no single solution for fibroid and a combination of medications and surgery needs to be taken into consideration. Some of the most common treatments for fibroids especially uterine ones include Lupron, progestin releasing IUD to name a few. Oral contraceptives also contribute in efficient fibroid treatment. Surgeries such as laparoscopic or hysteroscopic myomectomy or endometrial ablation will be performed depending on the severity, extent, and number of fibroids in the uterus. Hope this information helps!
