Fibristal to shrink fibroids before pregnancy - Please share your experience
Hello,

Am new to this forum, but am grateful to all of you ladies for sharing your experiences.

I have multiple fibroids (largest is 11cm) and wish to have children - soon - am 33yrs. My fertility specialist prescribed fibristal to shrink the fibroids before conceiving to reduce the risk of complications as those monsters tend to grow even bigger during pregnancy. I am now three weeks into treatment and have very mild side effects thus far.

Based on what I've read, fibristal appears to be used for pre-op. Could you ladies share:
- if you yourselves or know of anyone that used fibristal and conceived afterwards?
- Did the fibroids really shrink with this drug and by how much? I know this differs from person to person. But I wonder how much shrinkage can i realistically expect with a 3 or 6 month treatment? My gyno said I'll need two rounds of treatment to see maximum shrinkage.

My uterus is now about the size of a 5month pregnancy and extends above my navel - not fun at all. Infact, one of the fibroids pokes out on my right abdomen and I can literally feel it - feels hard like a rock.

Thanks for sharing.
