Journey to Healing

LaToya learned she had fibroids during what she thought was a routine visit to her OB/GYN. During an ultrasound to locate her IUD, the ultrasound technician asked LaToya how her fibroids were coming along. Not knowing what fibroids were, let alone that she had them, LaToya was in shock. She spoke with her OB/GYN, asked questions, and shared her concerns. Her doctor’s response was, “fibroids are like kudzu, you cut them away, and they just grow right back.” LaToya’s OB/GYN immediately recommended that she get a hysterectomy. From entering the office for a routine procedure to receiving news that she might have her womb removed all in the same visit, LaToya was overwhelmed.. The option her doctor presented to her didn’t sit well and LaToya made the choice to empower herself.. She embarked on a four-year-long (and counting) journey of researching fibroids. She made healthy lifestyle changes and chose to undergo a minimally-invasive medical treatment, uterine fibroid embolization (UFE).After her UFE procedure, LaToya shared her fibroid experience on her personal Facebook page. She received an overwhelming response to her story and felt that God was calling her to help other women.Following many brainstorming sessions with her husband, she founded The Fibroid Pandemic to do something she’s passionate about — helping Black women heal from fibroids.
