Fibroids don't normally enlarge after menopause and usually shrink after menopause if there are no added hormones (HRT).

Taking away estrogen usually will cause fibroids to shrink. If you are taking estrogen, stopping may cause your fibroid to shrink. However, there are no other medications that will cause your fibroid to shrink.

If your fibroid has been enlarging at all after menopause, that can sometimes be a sign that it's more than a fibroid and possibly cancer. In that case, it should probably be removed. Best wishes.
