I have enlarged uterus w fibroids. Nor wants to remove uterus

Customer Question

I have enlarged uterus w fibroids. Nor wants to remove uterus and cervix. I am worried about how that will affect orgasm and vaginal lubrication. Also what about support. Won't pelvic organs fall? Since i am 50 yrs old should i just wait until i go thru menopause and see if the uterus and fibroids shrink?

Management of fibroid uterus depends on the size of the fibroid, number of fibroid, symptomatic and the age of the patient. If the size is quite large surgical intervention is the only choice and also if there are multiple in number with symptoms .
In other cases conservative treatment can be done like
oral progesterone. progesterone depot, gnrh analogue, danazole,
uterine are embolization also very effective.
If the conservative treatment fails surgery has to be done.
Surgical treatment like myomectomy is considered if the age of the patient is below45 or family is not completed.In your case hysterectomy is the best choice if surgical treatment is indicated.
After hysterectomy libido is not decreased. lubrication is same as seen in menopausal women.
Vault prolapse or fall is rare if the surgery is done properly.Thank you
