Patient : Dear Dr,
I am a healthy woman age 50. I think I am going thru "the change". I am having extremely heavy periods almost every 2 weeks. My breasts are also sore at this time. I have been diagnosed with fibroids (spelling ?) but they are not cancerous. I do not have family history to go by as my mother passed years ago. I want to know if there is a natural way that I can get through this without so much discomfort? I live in California and do not have medical insurance so surgery is not an option.
