Fibroid Treatment

Uterine Fibroid Treatment from Ogden Clinic

Uterine fibroids are benign growths that happen in the muscle of the uterus, typically during a woman’s childbearing years. Some of these growths are small and do not cause any symptoms, but occasionally will be large and cause discomfort. Dr. Amber Bradshaw-Whitear recommends that her Utah patients look for symptoms of uterine fibroids like:

  • Heavy or irregular periods
  • Frequent urination
  • Constipation
  • Pelvic pressure, pain, or a feeling of “fullness” in the belly
  • Difficulty getting pregnant

Sometimes, depending on the symptoms and severity, Dr. Amber Bradshaw-Whitear might recommend uterine fibroids treatment at Ogden Clinic based on where your fibroids are located. There are three main areas where these growths may occur:

  • Subserosal: On the outside of the uterus
  • Intramural: Within the walls of the uterus
  • Submucosal: On the inside of the uterus

If you are experiencing pain, bleeding, or other fibroids symptoms that interfere with your life, there are uterine fibroids treatment options available at Ogden Clinic in Utah including:

  • Birth control pills
  • Intrauterine devices (IUD) - depending on fibroid location
  • Anti-fibrinolytic medications
  • Uterine artery embolization
  • Endometrial ablation
  • Myomectomy
  • Hysterectomy

Many women across Utah will develop uterine fibroids of some degree during their life, and a large percentage may never cause any symptoms or complications. However, for those who develop larger uterine fibroids that call for medical treatment in the Ogden area, Dr. Amber Bradshaw-Whitear can recommend a wide variety of hormonal options and minimally invasive surgical procedures to alleviate the problem.

If you have been experiencing any of the above symptoms and might need uterine fibroids treatment in Ogden, make an appointment to see Dr. Amber Bradshaw-Whitear today!
