Although uterine fibroid embolization is an outpatient procedure, patients may stay in a recovery area for up to 23 hours.

Usually not. A fibroid should be a round mass in the wall of the uterus. A dead fetus would not be round and would be in the uterine cavity.

i would like to know the same thing. I had a scan recently and was told I had a fibroid BUT I also have a positive hpt? Would the fibroid cause the hpt to turn positive?

Uterine streching can feel as though you are having menustral cramps.

Uterine fibroids are the most common pelvic tumor.The cause of uterine fibroid tumors is unknown. Oral contraceptives and pregnancy lower the risk of developing new fibroid tumors.Fibroids may be present in 15 - 20% of women in their reproductive years -- the time after starting menstruation for the first time and before menopause. Fibroids may affect 30 - 40% of women over age 30. Fibroids occur 2 to 3 times more frequently in African-American women than in Caucasian women.The growth of a fibroid seems to depend on the hormone estrogen. As long as a woman with fibroids is menstruating, the fibroids will probably continue to grow, usually slowly.Fibroids rarely affect females younger than 20 or who are postmenopausal.Fibroids begin as small seedlings that spread throughout the muscular walls of the uterus. They can be so tiny that you need a microscope to see them. However, they can also grow very big. They may fill the entire uterus, and may weigh several pounds. Although it is possible for just one fibroid to develop, usually there is more than one.Sometimes, a fibroid hangs from a long stalk, which is attached to the outside of the uterus. Such a fibroid is called a pedunculated fibroid. It can become twisted and cause a kink in blood vessels feeding the tumor. This type of fibroid may require surgery.SymptomsSensation of fullness or pressure in lower abdomenPelvic cramping or pain with periodsAbdominal fullness, gasIncrease in urinary frequencyHeavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia), sometimes with the passage of blood clotsSudden, severe pain due to a pedunculated fibroid, incidence, and risk factors

In my case, I had a uterine fibroid -- it's a non-cancerous tumor like kind of thing in your uterus. If you do have one and it's small, birth control pills should control it pretty nicely. If it's larger, it'll be hard to control. :) Just go to your doctor and get it checked out.

A fibroid is an abnormal finger-like growth of part of the uterine wall, and often develop after having children. The uterine wall is generally fairl smooth, but a fibroid makes the wall "lumpy" with finger-like protrusions. Fiboids have many small blood vessels and fiboids bleed easily, resulting in heavier periods. Fibroids do NOT detach or "pass" during menstruation. In fact, during the cycle, fiboids swell and can cause pelvic discomfort and heavy bleedling. The only way to get rid of fiboids is through medical treatment or surgery. Unfortunately, most doctors prefer hysterectomy as the preferred 'treatment', resulting in the uterus being removed. But, a newer and much less-used treatment is to shrink the fiboids using medication injected into the tissue. If you have heavy bleeding / or clotting, check with your physician. Make sure to be checked for anemia since fibroids do cause heavier blood loss and sometimes very long periods (example: for weeks at a time).

The uterine tube is lined with cilia. These small hair-like projections sweep the egg toward the uterus.

No, but recovery hurts like hell

Menstruation is the shedding of the uterine lining, the 'clots' you see are just larger pieces of the uterine lining. Menstrual flow doesn't clot like normal blood, if it did it'd prevent menstruation.

Uterine Fibroids affect around 20 percent of women over 35 years old. Estrogen, blood sugar levels, and growth hormones trigger the growth of the fibroid so changing your lifestyle to a high-fiber diet will aid in shrinking them. High-fiber foods, such as beans, whole grains, berries and melons, assist the liver in processing estrogen and removing unneeded estrogen from your body and shrink your fibroids. In addition to adding food to shrink your fibroids, you should also avoid certain foods like red meat, processed sugars and dairy products. These foods increase estrogen production and trigger fibroid growth.

Yes they do,just like all the other things that will be put inside your recovery disk.

A cyst is usually a small benign sac filled with a fluid of some sort depending upon the type of cyst. Fibromas (or fibroid tumors or fibroids) are benign tumors that are composed of fibrous or connective tissue. They can grow in all organs, arising from mesenchyme tissue. Cysts usually hurt when they become irritated, but fibroids can hurt at any time because they are kind of like a connective scar tissue that pulls on the various things it is connected to.
