Though fibroid (in all its forms) is against the interests of any woman, yet many women allow it because of the fear of death or fear of complications of surgery or fear of sterility (inability to conceive) after the operation.
In many cases, fibroid can send a woman out of her job or daily routines, by excessive bleeding and weakness. It can abort pregnancies through recurrent miscarriages. Fibroid has led to some women being thrown out of their matrimonial homes because of infertility. It also has been responsible for family disharmony, divorce or separation. Deaths also result, in some cases, from bleeding or complications of surgery of a large fibroid which was not sent packing on time.More info →
