CAN FIBROIDS BE TREATED WITH DRUGS?

In fibroids, drug treatment has a limited and temporary effect. In symptomatic fibroids, pain killers, iron preperations or low-dose oral contraceptives are frequently used to fight with the symptoms. Besides, there are also other drugs called “GnRH agonists” which may decrease or stop mensturation temporarily. They are generally used to reduce the size of the fibroids before myomectomy operation or provide a symptomatic relief for a short time. All these drugs must be used under the supervision of a gynecologist.
