Treatment options after diagnosing fibroids. Hormone (Replacement) Therapy: In some cases, your doctor will advise you to stop birth control pill or he/she may put you off the HRT (Hormone replacement therapy) if you are undergoing one. Depending on the diagnosis, the treatment may be quite opposite. Birth control pills may be advised to control bleeding. Excessive bleeding from fibroids results in severe anaemia. GnRH Agonists: Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone is responsible for releasing Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Lutenizing Hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland (in the brain). They regulate the reproductive parts in the body. The ‘agonist’ is an agent that acts ‘against’ the hormone. This results in shrinkage of fibroid tumours. However, long term administration of GnRH has shown that the patient can develop osteoporosis. (A condition when bones become fragile). In order to counteract this side effect, your gynaecologist may also put you on progestin hormone. Drawback of this treatment is, once you stop taking these agonist and progestin hormones, fibroids will most likely return.
