Fibroids

Patient

Q: Hello, My girlfriend has fibroids. She is considering going on the pill. Could the pill affect the size of the fibroids? Most reports we have seen show there is no link between the pill and fibroid growth. Others say there is even a chance the pill could shrink fibroids.
But there are some reports suggesting that it is best not to take the pill if you suffer from fibroids. My girlfriend will turn 35 this year.
Would you be able to provide some advice on this?

Many thanks,

Doctor
