Let’s start with the fact that you simply won’t know if you don’t get yourself to a doctor, get some medical imaging and establish whether or not fibroids might be the cause of that expanding belly. Every year, thousands of women discover they have (thankfully) benign, but (awkwardly) ballooning fibroid tumors. What started as a […] Learn more
