Fibroid tumors are benign uterine growths that cause women multiple complaints including pain, increased menstrual bleeding and cramping, pain with intercourse and an annoying protruding lower abdomen if they become large in size. Often the recommended treatment when they get too large is surgical removal. Most physicians offer little else for treatment, and we have many patients searching for alternatives in an attempt to avoid surgery.
While estrogen, particularly Estrone, is often a culprit in developing fibroid tumors, one bio-identical estrogen product, 2-methoxyestradiol (which can be found only at a compounding pharmacy) has been shown to inhibit and reduce fibroids. Used as a vaginal cream, it is absorbed locally into the uterus and vagina, reducing fibroid size.
