    Hi everyone. My name is Pollie and I am new to fertile thoughts. I just registered tonight. I just ordered Fibrovan and should be receiving it tomorrow or Monday. Has anyone had very heavy menstrual periods while taking fibrovan? I will be taking fibrovan to shrink fibroids.

    I've taken Fibrovan for about 3 weeks now so no results. I still have the same problems with my cycle. My cycle seems worse. I am having more pain before my cycle comes on.

    Thanks for responding to me so quickly. Could you keep me posted on how the fibrovan is working for you? I will start taking fibrovan as soon as I get it on Monday.

    I'm sorry that you have not seen results yet. I know it can be very frustrating to see no improvement each month when you get your period when you're expecting a change. Hang in there.

    Blessings,
    Pollie

    Smile fibrovan

    Hi, I have been using fibrovan for a few months now for large fibroids and associated pain/problems. My periods use to be horrible. Two specialists wanted to take my uterus out, however, I did not want to go that route! A friend of mine searched the internet and found fibrovan for me and said that I should at least try it. Well I have and will continue since I have been getting positive results. It is working slower than I thought it would, but having a period that is text book (instead of the HUGE amounts of blood and clots...) or super light, less pain, feel better and now it seems like my tummy maybe reducing in size ! Will go in for another ultra sound in 1-2 months to see for sure what the fibroids are doing, however the positive results will keep me using the product for now.

    I'm glad to hear you're doing well on fibrovan. It encourages me. This is my first period after starting fibrovan. I'm going into my third day...so far my period is not heavy. Did you take fibrovan while on your period? If so, did it make your flow heavier. Keep me posted on your progress.

    Blessings,
    Pollie

    I took fibrovan during my period. My period was the lightest one that I have ever had after using fibrovan and I am 51! Before fibrovan, I was losing so much blood, clots and the periods were starting to last for weeks. I was being pushed to have my uterus out by two different Doctors that I went to for help.

    **still do not know if the fibroids have gotten smaller, but again the problems are getting less than what I have had! So it has been worth it to me. On the fibrovan web site, there are mentions of results by three to four months of use up to six months to one year. My fibroids are big so I really am trying to be patience for at least four months before doing more testing. Meanwhile, I feel better.

    Oh, just recently, had an iron test done on my blood and I am now within the normal range!

    Hi, I'm am so glad that your iron levels are within normal range. I had mine checked along with an ultrasound in february. My iron, however, was low at the time, 9.2 to be exact. I'm due for another doctor's visit coming up and believe it is up and that the fibroids are smaller.

    I had my first period after taking fibrovan and it was lighter than last month but still on the heavy side with less clots. I will take fibrovan straight through my next period and stay on it for awhile.

    You told me that you took fibrovan on your period but did it make your periods heavier or with thinner bleeding? I'm just a little nervous about taking it on my period because my periods are still heavy. However, I'm going to give it a try and see what happens.

    I'm so excited that you are doing soooo good. Keep me posted on your fibroid shrinkage and I'll do the same. Have a great day!

    Blessings,
    Pollie

    Hi Redrose,

    I reread your message and saw that you did tell me your period was lighter while taking fibrovan. So look over that part of my reply.

    This information is misleading...

    Quote Originally Posted by organic View Post

    Fibrovan is made with Nattokinase : "an enzyme extracted and purified from a Japanese food called nattō. Nattō is a food made from fermented soybeans that has been eaten in Japan for many years. Nattō is produced by fermentation by adding the bacterium Bacillus natto, a beneficial bacteria, to boiled soybeans. The resulting nattokinase enzyme is produced when the bacterium acts on the soybeans. While other soy foods contain enzymes, it is only the nattō preparation that contains the specific nattokinase enzyme."

    While those with estrogen problems should not eat soy products, this enzyme is safe. It does not negatively affect estrogen. The person who responded first was actually the one who gave misleading information.
