Question Asked:

"hello doctor, In 2013 I was diagnosed of submucous uterine fibroid, it makes me have heavy periods. I went to the hospital in 2015 and d doctor said I should go for HSG test, which I did and the doctor said the fibroid is too small to be removed. I want to know if there is a drug I can use to reduce the heavy periods and can I get pregnant without removing the fibroid since doctor said it's small"

    good afternoon Fibroids do not usually cause infertility—it's Fibroids at the junction of the tubes and the uterus that MAY affect fertility... Most Fibroids are better left alone(like your doctor suggested). You can consult a gynaecologist concerning the heavy periods associated with the fibroid. Have a nice day.

    Hello Doctor, I really need your urgent assistance. I have heavy periods as a result of an uterine fibroid, what drugs can I use to reduce the heavy flow.

    There are drugs used for heavy periods(menorrhagia): tablets and injections, but you need to be first evaluated by a gynaecologist to assess need for medical treatment and suitability of the 'drug' options available. ( You should also note that the effects of these drugs may not be as immediate as you expect)
