Uterine fibroid is a non-cancerous growth in the female uterus of a reproductive woman, ranging from age 40s and
above. Even though according to research, females of age 20s and 30s also have few chances of this growth in their
uterus, as long as they have reach a child bearing age (reproductive age); in this stage it is encouraged that such individual
is treated with immediate effect to avoid the continuous multiplication of this growth. “Uterine fibroid embolism” can be
a good choice for treatment, which is a minimally invasive technique. In other cases, where the fibroid case has
multiplied so much,” myomectomy”, “hysterectomy” or “laparoscopy” can be considered to remove the fibroid growth
and/or remove the uterus entirely if the woman is no more interested to bear child or in the case that removal of the
uterus, could terminate the fibroid permanently. According to research, it has been discovered that uterine fibroids affect
Black women more (about 80%) than white women (about 70-75%). Various risk factors that causes fibroids includes;
family history, smoking, vitamin D deficiency etc. Avoiding junk foods, avoiding foods rich in fats, avoid high caffeine
and High sugary food is also a very good health lifestyle to avoid or maintain proper healthy lifestyle against UFs.
Mifepristone, Asoprisnil (ASP), telapristone are good pharmaceutical formulation for maintenance of UFs. UFs tends to
decrease its multiplication in the therapy of gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist (GnRH). Some of the classifications
of uterine fibroids includes; Intramural fibroid, Submucosal fibroid, Sub-serosal fibroid, Cervical fibroids etc.
