Some of the items to be discussed include:
• There is a “miracle diet” that can cause fibroids to disappear.
• Fibroids increase your chances of endometrial cancer.
• If you have fibroids, you must have a hysterectomy.
• If you have fibroids, you can’t become pregnant.
• You don’t need your uterus after you’ve had your children, so just remove it if it gives you any problems.
