MyoSure Fibroid Disease Q&A

What is fibroid disease?

Uterine fibroids, also called myomas or leiomyomas, are abnormal growths in the uterus that usually appear during a woman’s fertile years. They’re benign and not linked to a higher risk of uterine cancer.

Although not malignant (cancerous), these growths can swell, distorting the pelvic and stomach areas. They can also cause pain and other troublesome symptoms.

What are the symptoms of fibroid disease?

Abnormal uterine growths, including polyps and fibroids, can cause painful or embarrassing symptoms, including:

  • Fecal and urinary incontinence
  • Heavy periods
  • Pelvic pain
  • Frequent urination
  • Abnormal bleeding

While MyoSure is an excellent choice for many fibroid sufferers, Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates likely won’t recommend it for you if you’re pregnant, were previously diagnosed with uterine cancer, or have a pelvic infection.

What is the MyoSure procedure for fibroid disease?

For women wanting to improve their uterine health without losing the ability to become pregnant, the MyoSure procedure removes growths quickly while minimizing damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.

The Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates team performs your treatment in three steps. First, they dilate your cervix and pass a slender camera into your uterus. Once the camera is inside, they insert a surgical wand through your vagina into your uterus.

The wand carefully cuts the growth or growths and suctions them out of your body. After a successful extraction, the team gently removes the wand. You’ll need to arrange for someone to transport you home afterward.

How long will it take to recover from MyoSure treatment?

In addition to a remarkably short treatment time (MyoSure takes as little as 15-20 minutes to complete), this minimally invasive procedure doesn’t take you away from your routine for long. Some mild pain, vomiting or nausea, and cramping are common but should ease within a few days.

The Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates team will provide detailed instructions on how to care for yourself after your treatment. You can reach out at any time with questions.

You don’t have to endure the discomfort of fibroids. Book your appointment today with the Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates team online or call the office to learn more about how MyoSure can help.
