Fibroids Pressing on the Bladder – What Can I Do?

If you have fibroids pressing on your bladder, this is no doubt causing you great discomfort. It is not always the size of fibroids which is relevant, but often their location and this is a case in point!

Sometimes even large fibroids can cause very few issues when they are located centrally in the uterus. However, those which happen to be pressing on nerves, the bowel, other internal organs or, in this case, the bladder can cause significant problems.

The uterus lies just below the bladder and there is a partial attachment at one point. When fibroids grow forward, it can press on the bladder so that it cannot fill properly with urine meaning that you may want to pass urine more often. Some women also find that when they cough or sneeze, the fibroid can press on the bladder causing urine leakage (stress incontinence). This can naturally cause extreme embarrassment for many women.

So, what can you do about fibroids pressing on the bladder?

The problem with fibroids is that conventional medicine and surgery are really only temporary solutions. The reality is that unless you treat the causes of your fibroids (which neither surgery or drug treatment can do) they will regrow. This is the very reason why many doctors advocate a “watchful waiting” approach.

If you are the type of person who is willing to take charge of your own treatment, you could make a significant difference to the size of your fibroids by following a number of protocols including:-

* Dietary changes

* Significant lifestyle changes

* Stress reduction

* Toxin elimination

* Cleansing protocols

* Exercise regime
