Uterine fibroids (polyps) from the point of view of Ayurveda
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus. Fibroids range in size from seeding that are not detected by the human eye to large masses that can deform and enlarge the uterus. There can be a single fibroid or multiple ones. In serious cases, multiple fibroids can expand the uterus so much that it reaches the rib cage and can add weight.
Fibroids are generally classified by their location:
- Intramural fibroids grow within the muscular uterine wall
- Submucosal fibroids bulge into the uterine cavity
- Subserosal fibroids project to the outside of the uterus
Many women have uterine fibroids during their lives. Often, fibroids that have been present during pregnancy shrink or disappear after pregnancy.
Making healthy lifestyle choices, such as maintaining a normal weight and eating fruits and vegetables, you may decrease your fibroid risk.
According to Ayurveda, Vata and Kapha are the doshas involved in the pathogenesis of “Granthi Roga” (uterine fibroids). Granthi, if present in Yoni (female reproductive system) or Garbhashaya (uterus), causes menstrual irregularities.
