Menopause and the Eradication of Fibroids

Can menopause cause your fibroids to disappear? Find out if and how the changes in your body during menopause can be of benefit to you.

I’m 53 years old. I’ve been told that with menopause, the fibroids go away. Is this true?

The hormones estrogen and progesterone appear to be leading factors in the growth of fibroids; therefore, fibroids may stop growing or decrease in size after a woman has reached menopause due to the decline of estrogen levels.  At any rate, this is not always the case, as individual results may vary, and other factors may be contributing to your specific condition.
