Fibroids treatments in Canada, despite these facts, show more and more promise with every year that goes by ... 

NEW! A Form designed to eliminate up to 3 Visits to the GYN

One of the most aggravating wastes of time women face when dealing with Fibroids is the wait time for the Specialist. The MINUTE you walk out that door you don't get to go back for more info; you need to make a new appointment and wait another 3 to 8 months.

Imagine the benefits of getting all the right information to your GYN in one visit?

Not only will you find your path with more expediency but it leaves spaces for other women to make appointments (reducing wait times). 

The info you fill in here compiles and is formatted so you can take it to your Doctors Office and leave assured you got all the info you need for that visit. Your visit will be more productive and treatment choices closer to fruition by streamlining these visits. None of the info you input is stored, it's formatted and sent right back to you.
