In addition to during pregnancy, the uterus can preserve its shape and size throughout its life. It also happens that it increases in size due to the formation of nodules of muscle cells and connective tissue in the uterine wall muscles. They call them myomy, or simply muscular nodules. They can be several and have different sizes and can sit in the wall itself on the outside or as a bump inside the uterus.
Myomy rarely occurs before the age of 20 and the diagnosis is most common among women over 35 years. Myomy remains the whole life even though they usually decrease in size when menstrual periods have ceased and do not hurt, but if they grow, the uterus can gradually get a sizeable size, like a grapefruit or even bigger.
Symptoms of myomy
No matter where the myth is, they are good and usually they do not bother. If the myoma causes an inconvenience, the most common symptom is that you get abundant menstrual bleeding. A myoma can also disturb and irritate by its weight, by pressing the intestine, squeezing the bladder or giving rise to cramp-like pain, especially during menstruation. Myomy that sits in the womb and bends into the uterus can affect fertility.
Treatment of myoma
Myomy that does not cause any discomfort need not be treated but in some cases checked. If you experience anxiety due to myomy, treatment may be a drug or surgery depending on the type of discomfort and where the myoma is and how big it is. Major bleeding can often be treated with hormone spiral.
Drug treatment usually has a very good effect in the case of abnormal bleeding but may also reduce myth, surgery is not required or a minor surgery may be sufficient. If surgery is up to date, less myoma that bends into the uterus can usually be removed with a special type of scratching done through the vagina and cervix. In more severe cases, the entire uterus is removed, and it often happens via the abdomen with a tip-hole surgery or via the vagina.
