Fibroids have a strong genetic and family history, so if you have your mother or siblings suffering from it, u are at a high risk

Second, if you have a hormonal imbalance, you need to correct it by visiting your gynaecologist. Also if you are overweight you need to shed that weight by exercise and a diet which is supervised by a nutritionist

1 yeah women can experience health issues after menopause

Depending upon the symptoms the treatments are adviced

Life style modification also helps like involving in some excercise , yoga and meditation each one of it has its own benefits

Also I advice all my menopausal patients to have calcium and vit D supplements

One home recipe is to mix three types of seeds which are easily available in market

Sesame ( black til )

Sunflower seeds

Flax seeds

Dry roast them and have one table spoon daily in morning and evening

The logic is too chew them as much as possible cos chewing causes some important oils to be released in the body which is very helpful in this menopausal time

 if your are in late 40 with menopause and you want to conceive

There is only one way which is not ethically acceptable to all

U need to go for donor eggs

All these donor women are below 30 and hence they have healthy eggs , so u can use their eggs and your husbands semen

This is the only way provided it’s acceptable to both of you as a couple

Q. What are the causes and treatments for fibroids?

Asked anonymously   on 24th Nov, 21
Team member of Dr. Shweta Shah

2 causes of fibroid's can be:

  1. Obesity
  2. Family history
  3. Nulliparous ( means did not bear children)


Treatment Depending upon the age and family status is completed or not the treatment is decided

Go through my blog on fibroid's


Treatment of fibroid's depend upon the age of the patients and whether or not their child bearing is complete

If the child bearing isn’t complete , the treatment is to preserve the uterus and remove the fibroid only and plan pregnancy after three months of surgery

If the family is complete , removal of uterus is a good option as these fibroid's tend to recur
