Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are extremely common… 30% of women in their 30s, 40s, and 50s have them. Uterine fibroids themselves can impact fertility by way of interfering with proper implantation of an embryo, but it is the hormone imbalance that contributes to this fertility issue that is often of greatest concern.


While doctors understand there needs to be an event that causes fibroids to develop, the exact cause of this initial uterine fibroid formation is unknown. What is known is that hormonal factors appear to play a role in their growth. Uterine fibroids are estrogen-sensitive, meaning that they respond to estrogen in the same way that the lining of your uterus does – growing in response to the estrogen circulating in the body. Excess estrogen is one of the main culprits in causing not only fibroid growth, but also hormonal imbalance, which then causes disordered ovulation and may affect a woman’s ability to conceive and sustain pregnancy.

There are ways to support the body in maintaining a healthy environment within the uterus, and thankfully these 3 simple lifestyle changes may offer great support in healthy estrogen metabolism. Poor estrogen metabolism is a contributing factor to fibroid growth making it important to support healthy estrogen metabolism every day.
