Will I Need to Have a Hysterectomy If I Have Fibroids?

Read Transcript

The important thing for women to know is they do not have to have a hysterectomy if they have fibroids. They really need to have a very thorough discussion with their gynecologist to decide if this is something that they would like to do. But with science and technology today we have so many options, whether it's conservative, whether it's medical management or surgical management that you really do not have to resort to a hysterectomy.

When you see your gynaecologist, most of us do believe that if the fibroid is not bothering you, we don't necessarily have to bother it. So I feel that women really need to be aware where they are in this journey, and in this path with their fibroids and discuss that with their doctor and feel, I do not necessarily have to have a hysterectomy.
