Fibroids affects 1 in 3 women over 40 in Canada. Of those more than half
experience symptoms that affect their quality of life and many are so severe
they require care giving from a third party at least monthly.
Until recently, surgery was the most common form of treatment in
Canada for Fibroids. Of the available surgical options, most require recovery
time of one month with 6 months suggested as complete recovery.
In a recent CANFib survey of over 1000 women with Fibroids, more than
50% said while fertility is less of a concern, avoiding surgery was top of mind.
Medications, according to respondents, is the preferred treatment option.
