Are you or someone you know suffering from Uterine Fibroids? I didn’t know much about these until I went to my most recent physical with my gynecologist. I wasn’t having any major issues, but as I answered her questions, I must have alarmed her.
After talking to me for a few minutes, she ordered an ultrasound of my uterus. She briefly discussed the idea of uterine fibroids and wanted to get a better look inside me.
Her concerns turned out to be nothing at all, but it did make me more aware of my body and health.
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

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.
