Fibroids do grow rapidly because of sustained blood flow. The overall volume will create the feeling of being pregnant as well as the feeling of gained weight, bloating and exhaustion from carrying the extra weight. Fibroids can grow to several pounds if left untreated.
The reason fibroids are able to cause such trouble is simple: Blood supply!! The more blood they can divert and absorb, the more they grow.
The good news? Fibroid Embolization cuts the blood flow to the fibroids, thus starving them and causing them to undergo progressive dissolution without any need for surgery or significant downtime.
