Friday July 27th, Ikeja stood still as Victoria Iheakonye led celebrities such as Aquilla Njammah, Ola and Chris House mates of BBA and Ifeoma Okeke on a walk to create awareness for Fibroid and Fertility, an initiative by Miss Plus-Size African beauty pageant.
The walk, which started at Tantalizers, ended at the office of the Lagos State Commissioner for Health who was full of praises for Victoria. Award-winning actress, Ini Edo lead other top celebrities, who have endorsed the campaign and also supported the pageant.
Miss plus-size African Beauty pageant is created for plus size ladies (size 12 upward), as well as to create an avenue where all plus size African women/ladies between ages 18- 35 years would be given the opportunity to be part of the pageant.

when its comes to fibroids,i have had my own share of it,i have been to Europe 3 times in less than 2 years,all for fibroids operations.the last one i did was in november after i lost my 5 months old son in my womb because there was a fibroid and the baby couldn.t grow freely and therefore died.Now some tips for all the women expecially all the yound girls out there:if you are not ready to have kids,use a condom,abortion is completely out of the questions because that is one of the major things that triggers the fibroids,second thing is having kids early helps alot to prevent fibroids,thats for all the women out there busy chasing careers and are therefore not ready to have kids yet,change your minds.third thing is if you have fibroids,avoid meat completely,thats one secret the doctors are not telling.Research have shown that there is something in meat that makes these fibroids grow like c***y.even if you dont have fibroids but you also dont have kids,but wish to have someday please,please avoid any thing cooked with meat whether in soups or stew ones it has meat in it,avoid it.stick to fish and chicken but cow meat is no no no.fibroid has caused me alot of euros and time.as for the doctors they are happy to operate you of fibroids cos they make their money and they really dont tell how to prevent it,i spent alot of time searching for answers and this is what i found,since november last year i have not tasted meat and am free from fibroid,so here is a little tip for my sisters out there,prevention they say is better than cure.

@Maame, it is well with you my dear sister, as God Almighty has given me my children I have faith that He will also give you yours IJN. It is written "Non shall be Barren in the Land", I receive this word in faith for all my lovely sisters (apart from the ash*w*oos on NFC) all over Africa who are believing God for fruit of the womb.
With regards to the topic, there is an ongoing research which has so far identified two possible cause of fibroids particularly in the 3rd World:
1 - early use of contraceptive pills
2 - water is being investigated as well - because of the increase in sufferrers of the illness in West Africa. Europeans, Asians and S. Americans do get fibroids too so it is not limited to Africans.
maame | 8/6/2012 9:12:54 AM |
my dear you are absolutely right,fibroids is not only in africa,the doctors who operated on me told my husband and i that they get these cases quite alot and infact i was actually the first african they were going to operate on.they did mention women from philipine,china,albania and germans.they were also not surprised about my age because they told most of the cases is just about my age.Am 32 now and my first diagnose of fibroid was when i was 29,at that time they were soo tiny that i didnt really care much about it.whithin the space of 11 months,they had grown soo big that it scared me.infact one of the doctors,very nice woman told me that they are getting more and more of these cases that they are thingking of encouraging yound women to get pregnant early.and i wondered why only women gets it,why not the men,she smiled and said well because men cant have babies,its only comes to fertile women,when you are fertile and not getting pregnant,then fibroids steps in to fill the space for the baby.

Maame ps b careful dnt allow anyone decieve u. There are no herbs anywere to dissolve fibroid. i have interacted with so many women wit fibroid in Nigeria, & we tell u, all those herbal dissolvers are fake. I have used many herbs including d big names like YEM KEM -V expensive yet dont work they trigger worse symptoms. Surgery &divine intervention are d only keys to solving this burden called fibroid Reply this thread

If they're big enough, the doc can feel it dnuirg an exam. Then the doc will order an ultrasound and can see it on the ultrasound. For ovarian cysts, the doc will usually do an internal ultrasound the ultrasound wand is put in your v****a. It's easier to see small things that way. But for something large, then the doc will do an external ultrasound (on your belly) like they do for pregnant women. For ovarian cysts, there are 3 things possible to do:1) nothing wait and see if it goes away on its own2) birth control pills see if they make it go away3) surgery to remove the cystSometimes cysts interfere with pregnancy, sometimes not. Depends on the type of cyst. Sometimes when removing the cyst, the ovary must be removed too. But you can be fertile with just one ovary.For uterine fibroids, there are several possibilities. They will never go away on their own.1) uterine artery embolization (UAE) a relatively new procedure to non-surgically shrink the fibroid so it goes away, via blocking the artery supplying it with blood.2) surgery to remove the fibroid only called myomectomy3) hysterectomyWith UAE, you can remain fertile. With hysterectomy, you won't be fertile anymore. And having a fibroid can interfere with carrying pregnancy.References : Reply this thread
