UPDATE: My Wife Has Pregnancy Symptoms But Not Pregnant, What's Wrong With Her? by mrhubby: 11:15pm On Jul 30, 2017
Doctors in the house, sequel to my earlier post seeking advice on what could possibly be wrong with my wife displaying pregnancy symptoms and pregnancy tests showing otherwise, I have come with the update.
For those that missed the earlier post, you can read it https://www.nairaland.com/3917164/wife-pregnancy-symptoms-not-pregnant#58383246

Having gone through the 5 pages of advice and comics of the earlier post, I concluded it was wise to get a pelvic scan done. My wife went for the pelvic scan and the result of the scan was mind-blowing.

Report of the scan reads as follows:

USS shows a bulky uterus with AP Diameter of 5.0cm

The Myometrium is expanded by solid tissue masses with mixed echo textures and AP diameters
(a) 2.9 cm [Anterior Intramural]
(b) 1.9 cm [Cervical]

The Endometrial plate is of normal thickness is measuring 6mm

Both ovaries appear normal in sizes and structure

Adnexae bilaterally free

Pouch of Douglas contains scanty clear free fluid


Under Doctor's comment, there are 2 assessments as follows:

(1) Uterine Myomas
(2) Please R/O Clinically Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases


And under suggestion, it only says ECS M/C/S

Upon getting the result, I went online to search the meanings of Uterine Myomas and I got to know it to be Fibroid. We went straight to a gynecologist and showed him the result. He confirmed it's indeed Fibroid and there is no solution except she undergoes surgery to remove the 2 pieces of Fibroid. We vehemently objected the surgical idea and asked if there are any alternative solutions besides being operated on. The Gyn insisted there are no drugs or anything else that can cure it besides surgery.

Nairalanders, my wife has not being herself since we returned from the doctor. She is 31 years old and she's on the verge of losing her mind. Please, is there anybody on this forum with a better solution to this problem? I did lots of searching online but I couldn't come up with any comprehensive approach to tackling this menace. Any suggestions, ideas, and advise(the good, the bad and the ugly)from the house on the best manner to approach this will be greatly appreciated.

Also, someone to give adequate interpretation of the scan report will be appreciated because the doctor was more concerned about having surgical procedure set up and failed to fully enlighten us on the rest contents of the report.

Thanks and help save my family.

Worried husband.

Surgical operation is best option.

From the scan, there are two very small fibroids in her womb.. 2.9cm and 1.9cm. These are obviously very small, located within the substance of the womb and at the mouth of the womb (cervix).

From your narrative, this was an incidental finding meaning that your wife had no symptoms relating to fibroid like heavy menstrual flow, painful period, chronic waist pains, etc.

It may also interest you to know that there are reasons to undergo surgical operation for uterine fibroid, meaning most fibroids must be operated while some are left alone irrespective of their sizes.

If a woman has real disturbing symptoms, no matter the size of the fibroid, or if she has been having recurrent pregnancy losses, or if she has been finding it difficult to conceive for some years and scan showed she has fibroid (not as tiny as the one your wife's scan shows anyway), then such a woman will be offered surgery for the fibroid.

If she has no symptoms and fibroid was found incidentally during a test for some other things, irrespective of the size, then she doesn't need any surgery unless, she feels she should get it removed, especially the huge ones in which her tummy is obviously swollen.

There are two major types of surgical operations done for fibroid, the first is to remove the fibroid alone and leave the womb while the second is to remove both the fibroid and the womb together.

While the first operation is done for the younger age group, who have not finished giving birth or still looking for the fruit of the womb, the latter is for those who have no business with childbirth again.

Note that after the former surgery, the fibroid may reoccur after some years, and may require another surgery, the latter is a permanent cure for fibroid, because fibroid requires the womb to grow.

Note also that there are drugs to reduce the size of fibroid (for huge ones) in preparation for operation but their side effects are not palatable and once they are stopped, the fibroid may grow bigger.

There is no native medicine to cure fibroid, no food supplements, no natural roots and herbs, so don't let anyone deceive you.

Note also that fibroid does not cause infertility neither does infertility cause fibroid, that causal relationship between the two has not been established.

Based on the foregoing, I don't think your wife needs surgery for those fibroid nodules, for now. It's possible you were not patient enough to listen to your doctor's explanation, you were carried away when you heard operation but was not ready to hear the explanations he was to give later.

Just relax, your wife will get pregnant in no distant time. mrhubby

Cheers!!

Thank you so much for taking your time to provide such detailed explanation. I wouldnt say we were impatient enough to listen to the doctor's explanation but you may not be far from the truth anyways. The word, surgery, is scary enough to induce concentration lose. I will put everything you said in mind and we will wait to weigh our option. Once again, thanks and God bless.

Thanks sweetheart for the advise. Yes we plan on conducting scan every 3 months to investigate how the fibroids behave of time and then we will base our decision on whatever we find during the course of the investigation. Dear, if I may ask, what are the local herbs that can cure fibroid?. Also why did you opt for surgery if there are alternative cure? Lastly, I join you and your family in prayers that God will touch you and grant you the fruit of the womb. It's well with you my dear. Your miracle is on the way. Stay strong and everything will be alright.

Thank you very much for ur prayers...In my village, we have this native medicine that do cure fibroid, but I opted for surgery, because my fibroid was very big due to some fertility drugs I took,not knowing I had fibroid and boosted the fibroid making it grow faster, so the doctor was like,i curiously need to be operated with immediate effect.

I'm sorry to hear that. God will soon answer our prayers. I will not mind if you can PM me so that we can talk about the medicine you talked about. Thanks and hoping to hear from you soon.
