Hi....., Medical line of management of fibroids includes gnrh analogues...... These medications are given for three to six months and induce a hypoestrogenic (low estrogen) state. When successful, they can shrink the fibroids by as much as 50%...... Mifepristone is an antiprogestin drug that can shrink fibroids to an extent comparable to treatment with the GnRH analogs.....  Low dose formulations of oral contraceptives are also sometimes given to treat the abnormal bleeding associated with fibroids, but these do not shrink the fibroids themselves......Consult Gynecologist....
