Understanding How Uterine Fibroids Can Affect Reproductive SystemUnderstanding How Uterine Fibroids Can Affect Reproductive System

One of the most common conditions that affect the ability of a woman to conceive a child is the presence of uterine fibroids in the body. However, what is interesting to note is that presence of fibroids in the uterus is actually quite a common phenomenon and affects a considerable percentage of women from all across the globe. So how does it then create infertility only for a small percentage of women carrying uterine fibroids?

The answer is basically the size of your fibroids. As mentioned earlier, uterine fibroids are common and there are millions of women giving birth to healthy little babies without even knowing they were affecting by this condition. Many women do not even feel symptoms of fibroids present in the uterus and are able to go about their daily routine without any adverse consequences. However, for some unlucky ones, the fibroids in their uterus start to grow over and above their average size.

This is where the problem begins. Now imagine a circular ball like object growing inside of your uterus. Moment the fibroids start to grow, it puts pressure on all organs around them. As the growth continues, neighboring organs start getting squeezed. They start to lose their normal shape and are unable to perform its functions as they should. During such conditions, a woman will start experiencing symptoms such as irregular menstrual cycle, pain in the abdomen, feeling uneasy and nauseous amongst others. Because these fibroids are present in the uterus, it is obvious that the first organs they affect are the ones in the reproductive system. Eggs from the ovaries are unable to properly move to the uterus to mate with sperms and in general the whole movements inside the reproductive organs become completely erratic.

Although growth in uterine fibroids do not have other health implications other than fertility issues, if the growth becomes highly abnormal and continues without being controlled, it can create serious health consequences for the patient. In fact in some rare cases uterine fibroids have grown to over 8 inches or like having a football in your uterus. In such cases, the fibroids become highly critical and needs to be treated as soon as possible. Treatment for uterine fibroid growth involves either surgical procedures or usage of medication to shrink the size of the fibroid.

Although surgery and medication have been used regularly for treating fibroid growth, they are not recommended purely because of the possibilities of side effects in the body. Not just that but results from these procedures are also not always positive and fibroids can reoccur growing again without any control. This is the reason why some believe in using natural remedies or medication that contain natural or organic ingredients to treat uterine fibroid growth. Natural medication would typically comprise of organic herbs that are found in nature. These herbs are able to treat the source of the problems that cause fibroids in the first place and are also able to shrink those fibroids that have started to affect the reproductive system around them.
