Support throughout your lifetime

We specialise in the timely diagnosis, management and treatment of fibroids. Our expert doctors will create an individualised treatment plan for you to help relieve your fibroid symptoms and minimise the impact fibroids have on your everyday life.

Diagnosing Fibroids

You may already have a diagnosis of fibroids, or you may be concerned that symptoms such as heavy periods, painful periods or infertility are signs that you have fibroids. During an initial consultation, we will undertake a full review of your medical history, your symptoms and how this is affecting you.

We will also undertake any tests necessary to find out if you have fibroids. These may include:

  • A pelvic exmaination
  • Ultrasound scan
  • A laparoscopy where we use a small telescope to examine your pelvic area
  • A hysteroscopy where a small telescope is used to examine your uterine cavity

Treating Fibroids

You will not have to wait long for a diagnosis and we will be able to advise a treatment and management plan designed around your needs.

We provide a full range of treatment options for fibroids in our state-of-the-art facilities. Your doctor will discuss all these options with you and our experienced care teams will be on hand to provide sensitive support and after care.

Fibroids can cause infertility as these growths cause damage to your fallopian tubes. Early diagnosis and treatment will help to prevent this damage.

Symptoms and Causes of Fibroids

Fibroids are lumps or growths, made up of muscle cells and other tissues that grow within the uterus. These growths cause a range of fibroid symptoms, particularly around the time of your period, including:

  • Heavy periods (menorrhagia)
  • Painful periods (dysmenorrhoea)
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Pelvic tenderness

If fibroids are severe, you may experience:

  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Urinary and bowel symptoms

Left untreated, fibroids can lead to chronic fibroid pain, damage to your fallopian tubes and long-term infertility.

Fibroids are one of the most common gynaecological conditons, affecting almost 20% of women under the age of 50.

It is important to diagnose fibroids as soon as possible to minimise fibroid pain and other fibroid symptoms and potential damage to your fallopian tubes which may result in long term infertility.
