It’s Time To Talk About Uterine Fibroids

fibroid

Talking about your condition can make a difference.

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in the wall of your uterus. The most common symptom of uterine fibroids is heavy bleeding during your period. You may sometimes feel embarrassed to talk about your condition, but know that there are other women like you, who could also benefit from this discussion.

Through the My Fibroid Study, a clinical research study, doctors are evaluating an investigational medication to see if it may safely and effectively reduce bleeding during your period.

You may qualify to participate if you:

  • Are premenopausal, 18-51 years old
  • Have heavy periods
  • Have uterine fibroids*
  • Have monthly periods

*A previous diagnosis of uterine fibroids is not required to qualify for the study.
Qualified participants will receive study-related care and investigational medication at no cost. You may also be reimbursed for travel and other expenses.
Your participation may also help:

  • Researchers learn more about the investigational medication
  • You gain a better understanding of heavy menstrual bleeding and uterine fibroids
  • Other women in the future

For more information and to see if you qualify, visit MyFibroidStudy.com, call 844-67-STUDY or text WOMAN2 to 87888.
In addition to participating in a research study, you can take steps towards living a healthier life. This includes staying positive and determined, communicating about your health with a doctor or with your peers, educating yourself through trustworthy sources, engaging in regular exercise and changing your diet.

    I think I used to have this in the past – my monthly periods are not that heavy as it were before but I remember one of those times that I had major heavy bleeds – it truly suck. Good thing I am over that.

    How much of a coincidence is it that I’d never heard of this, until a friend of a friend just discovered that she had this?!?! She is in a lot of pain, and has complained about these symptoms!
