What are fibroids

Fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that develop in the uterus. No root cause is known, however, it’s believed that the hormones estrogen and progesterone play a key role in the formation and growth of fibroids. Many humans with a uterus may be asymptomatic and unaware they have fibroids, while others may experience debilitating and painful symptoms such as menorrhagia heavy (abnormally heavy or prolonged menstrual cycles), pelvic pressure or pain, anemia, pica, hair loss, skin issues, brain fog, extreme lethargy, incontinence, reproductive issues, and more!

Who do fibroids affect

Uterine fibroids affect approximately 70 percent of humans with a uterus in child bearing age. However, this condition disproportionately affects Black humans with a uterus who are three times more likely to develop uterine fibroids. They are also more likely to develop fibroids earlier in life, have larger tumors, experience more intense symptoms, and have a higher rate of surgery and hospitalization than other ethnicities.

Learning through the BFF program that alternative therapies are actually covered under my insurance and learning how to use my flexible spending account, has been a breath of fresh air!
