Fibroids 23 Feb 2007
What are your options if you are diagnosed with fibroids?

One in four women in England suffer from menstrual problems at some point in their life and half of those may never see their GP about the problem. Fibroids can be one of the causes and traditionally women have been offered a hysterectomy as a solution. However there are now many more treatment options and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has issued new guidelines to help women find the right one.

Martha talks to Bridgette York, who had an eleven pound fibroid and is Director of the Fibroid Network and Jenny Higham, Consultant Gynaecologist, Imperial College, London.
