Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
2304.  R.C S-O-T Fibroids affect around 25% of the population, yet they are hardly mentioned in the media or online articles about women’s health issues. There is little funding for treatment or research, leading to a range of treatments that cannot/will not be performed by some doctors. This means that many women’s fertility is taken away prematurely due to a lack of skill or awareness by some doctors. Many doctors are unsympathetic to this condition too and cannot/will not believe the effect this has on many women’s quality of life.
2303.  R.M Manchester Would just like to know where they come from and how we could avoid
2302.  S.R Feltham, Middlesex
2301.  A.O Sheffield Fibroids can make women house bound a few days every 3-4 weeks (due to varying female cycles) The blood loss is so severe it can cause Anaemia - which is then another disorder that then has to be treated in itself! Gynaecologist’s will not help until they reach 5cm’s, they just send you away like you are exaggerating the symptoms - by 5cm’s it’s been years of pain & impossibley ridiculous bleeding - please help I can not work due to this causing me Anxiety, pain, upset, bed rest etc etc etc
2300.  K.D Uttoxeter I had a 5cm Fibriod my GP was great and so was my consultant even though I waited over a year for my Operation I was told by my GP in April 2016 I had a fibriod I had my first appiontment at hospital 10th May 2016 I had my Lap Myo on 10th May 2017. I glad to say my life is back to normal but I strongly belive there needs to be more reseach and people need to be more aware of Fibriods
2299.  C.C Ely It's taken nearly four years to be diagnosed with fibroids. I have had my symptoms continually dismissed by my doctor and only by pure chance of seeing a locum doctor did I get referred for a scan or blood test. Heavy bleeding needs to be taken seriously as it has had a huge effect on my quality of life. Being fobbed off with the only options of the pill or coil without any investigation Is generalising women's problems and putting them at huge risk.
2298.  J.B Long Buckby
2297.  Z Derby I am suffering with fibroids for the second time this year, please more research and awareness is required to try to understand and treat this awful problem that affects so many women\\\'s lives
2296.  N.W Lincoln
2295.  L.M Bexhill-On-Sea Had my symptoms not been dismissed by gp for 3yrs, open Myomectomy could have been avoided. Millions of women suffering all around the world. Pls help!
2294.  D.S Tipton After a year of hell, before which i had never heard of fibroids, I am having a hysterectomy on 5th Jan 2018. Please help to get research for fibroids so women are not suffering, had I been a dog they would’ve put me down.
2293.  E.G Royston
2292.  P.F POTT SHRIGLEY 33% of the female population should sign this petition
2291.  K.R Cambridge
2290.  S London
2289.  K.C Lampeter I have PCOS and now just been diagnosed with a large fibroid in my womb causing heavy and prolonged periods. So I have a conflicting problem as PCOS usually presents with absent periods but the fibroids are causing too much blood loss. I bleed everyday or every month with no break, stemming from spotting/light to heavy clotting. I am currently very anaemic and because I cannot have a blood transfusion due to other complications so I am on a "slow go" iron tablets solution. Please can more funds be pumped into research for this condition. I have a daughter who is likely to also experience fibroids. They are painful, they really limit my activities due to blood loss and I just want my life back. I really do not want my daughter to have to live the same way as I currently do. Please help!
2288.  E.L London
2287.  G.L London
2286.  T.T London Fibroids are not a complicated health matter as other diseases of our age so we need to study it fully to prevent unneccessary suffering of women.
2285.  T Leicester Definitely need more research, information and action on this. My fibroids were discovered 3yrs ago and make my life a misery (so far this month I've bled heavily for 15 out of 22 days!!). I've eventually been refered to gynae but it's been a battle and I've still to convince them to do something about them in as non-invasive a manner as possible.
