When it comes to uterine fibroids, everyone may have heard of them, especially girls, because more and more people suffer from uterine fibroids, so everyone is not surprised, but because uterine fibroids show little, so many people I just find out that they have this disease after examination. Then, what kind of people "like" uterine fibroids? Let's see.What kind of people do uterine fibroids “love”?
1. Women of childbearing age 30-50 years
Ziyan's myoma occurs more often in women aged 30-50, since these women are most prone to impaired estrogen and progesterone secretion. At same time, from menarche to present, accumulated estrogens and progesterone for many years can stimulate proliferation of Ziyan muscle cells leads to formation of uterine fibroids.
2. Nulliparous women
If a woman has had a complete pregnancy once in her life, it can boost her immunity for 10 years. A complete reproductive process will also release progesterone and protect women's health, helping women avoid gynecological diseases such as uterine fibroids.
3. Women who have had multiple abortions
Frequent abortions harm health of uterus and affect stability of hormones in women, thereby contributing to formation of uterine fibroids.
4. Women whose married life is not harmonious
Prolonged disorders of sexual life can easily lead to impaired hormone secretion, chronic pelvic congestion and development of uterine fibroids.
5. Women with family history
Uterine fibroids have familial clustering, which means that sisters and daughters of patients with fibroids are more likely to have uterine fibroids than other women. Therefore, sisters, mothers and other women suffering from uterine fibroids should pay attention to regular examinations and reasonable nutrition.
6. Obese women
Studies have shown that a 20,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 increase in a woman's weight increases her risk of developing uterine fibroids by 21%, and a 1-unit increase in body mass index can increase her risk of developing uterine fibroids by 6%.Does uterine fibroids need treatment?
The need for treatment of uterine fibroids depends on whether they had an adverse effect on body.
1. Uterine fibroids are most common benign tumor of female reproductive system, an estrogen-dependent tumor, predominantly occurring in women aged 30 to 50 years, while likelihood of malignancy is extremely low. If uterine fibroids are relatively small and patient is asymptomatic, no treatment is usually required, but regular V-ultrasounds are needed.
2. If it is a submucosal uterine fibroid, it will easily lead to early miscarriage, as it will affect implantation of fertilized eggs. Women planning to become pregnant are usually recommended hysteroscopic surgery to remove submucosal fibroids.
3. If these are relatively large intramural uterine fibroids or subserous uterine fibroids, there were symptoms of compression or secondary anemia, or even a suspicion of malignant neoplasms, etc., it is necessary to treat in a timely manner.
