About half of all women will have uterine fibroids at some point. Some research says that as high as 80% of women will have at least one fibroid by the time they are age 50. Most of these fibroids will not be symptomatic. About 300,000 hysterectomies are performed each year in the U.S. due to fibroids that are causing problems. This group is a place to ask questions, talk about treatment options, offer advice and BTDT's (been there done that), and generally have a safe place to discuss uterine fibroids. Some women really need treatment, some really don't, and appropriately getting or avoiding treatment usually comes down to knowledge.
