  • Overview

    Uterine fibroids affect up to 40% of reproductive-aged women. For many of these women, healthcare inequality adds additional stress to their quality of life and well-being as they seek effective management. The sad reality is that all too often, women with uterine fibroids are summarily recommended for hysterectomy.

    A real-life and personal patient journey unfolds in today’s discussion, one that reveals the twists, turns, and cultural challenges faced by both the physician and patient as each seeks to effectively manage her uterine fibroids.
