Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1125.  H.M London
1124.  E.P Ruislip I was diagnosed with fibroids during routine ultrasounds and although they were never that much of a problem, when I became pregnant things changed. I experienced bleeding during the first trimester of my pregnancy and pain in the location fo the fibroids, but doctors dismissed that these symptoms were related to the fibroids and the midwifes did not really give me advice or note that fibroids might interfere with delivery and did not schedule ultrasounds to check the growth of the fibroids. In the end We moved overseas and I was placed in the care of a gynacologist who as part of standard practice did an ultrasound at 32 weeks and noted that the fibroids had doubled in size, were impacting on my babies head, was partally blocking the birth canal and placed in such a way that a c- section delivery was very dangerous. As a result, she monitored the size of the baby and I was induced at 39 weeks to make sure the baby was small enough to give me the best chance of a natural delivery avoiding a c-section. I do not believe in the UK they would have treated my fibroids in such a way and I would not have had special interventions to make sure the risks were lowered.
1123.  V.L London
1122.  D.F London Fibroids should be a routine part of any prepregnancy or early pregnancy consultation to help women understand their own fertility and understand the possible outcomes early!
1121.  J.B Notts
1120.  J.K Stockport
1119.  K.J Stafford
1118.  M.A.M Llantrisant I've been diagnosed with a large fibroid around 12 cm, I'm only 30, I want to have children. My periods are extremely heavy, which has resulted me on anaemia. I have not been given options by the gyn that I've been seen for the last year, only scans and monitoring, on my last consultation I was told the operation was risky so I could lose my womb. I have tried several herbal treatments but they don't seemed to make much difference, so the fibroid is still there and I can probably just carry on growing. I just wish more research is done into fibroids that help understanding them better and possibly find a cure or not such an invasive treatmet that threat womens bodies so badly.
1117.  K.J Sowerby bridge More research please
1116.  R.D Glasgow
1115.  K.O Milton Keynes
1114.  J.B Pontefract
1113.  R.C St Helena Island, SAO Better knowledge will make early detection possible and lead to informed treatment and with education help inform younger women
1112.  M.C Radlett Had both fibroids and endometrian cysts, my Gyno recommended an endoscopy and have recovered well so far.
1111.  E.L ISLINGTON
1110.  Z.G Swinton I have suffered from repeated fibroids and found that there are very few non-invasive treatment options available. This is a very common condition and the impact on the lives of women who suffer from fibroids is massive so I would urge that funding into research is given a priority.
1109.  L Basingstoke I have been suffering with a fibroid for a long time & will be having surgery,im 28 and the thought of not having anymore children is devastating,i had no idea what a fibroid was until now & has made my life hell,i think more should be done to help young women aware.q
1108.  N.C Kent
1107.  P.H Woodingdean, Brighton My periods stopped 5 years old, so why am I still having trouble with my fibroids?
1106.  J.P London
