Uterine Fibroid: Part 1- Food to avoid if you are suffering from Uterine Fibroid

You can have uterine fibroid if you are suffering from:

1) Heavy menstrual bleeding:

How do you know if you have heavy bleeding?

If you need to change your pad within less than

2 hours or you pass a blood clot too frequently or

if you have heavy flow for more than

7 days, that is heavy bleeding

2) Constant pain or pressure in abdomen:

Pain in abdomen can be due to various reasons but

in the uterine fibroid you may have pain in

lower abdomen in pelvic region. You feel like

pressure on bladder if the fibroid is big.

3) Frequent urination :

if your uterine fibroid is big as I said before,

it will cause pressure on your bladder leading to

frequent urination. (Or if you have urinary tract infection,

then also it may lead to frequent urination.)

4) Lower back pain :

Fibroid can cause pressure on your

lower back muscles and nerve leading to

lower back pain. A large fibroid on the

back surface of uterus is more likely to

cause back pain.

5) Pain during intercourse:

Large fibroid in uterus and lower end of

uterus near cervix can cause pain and

discomfort during intercourse.

What is fibroid?

Fibroid are non-cancerous growth from the

wall of your uterus. There can be

one or multiple fibroids, and size can be

small or big.

Today we will discuss which

food to avoid if you are suffering from

uterine fibroid so that it can help you in your treatment.

Food to avoid in Uterine Fibroid are:

  • Egg
  • Dairy &
  • meat

why to avoid these foods?

  • Hormone- oestrogen feeds your fibroids
  • Which is why your fibroids vanish with menopause

when your oestrogen level reduces.

  • The synthetic oestrogen is routinely fed/injected to

the animals that are grown for the market.

  • Thus, when you consume these dairy, egg or meat products,

you get a dose of synthetic oestrogen which is

even more damaging for your fibroid.

You should also avoid sugar, white flour, alcohol,

caffeine, and cigarettes, all of which

stress your body and delay the process of healing.


That’s all for today

Next Tuesday we will discuss about the food that helps you in your uterine fibroids.

Till then….

Take care.
