Hello there...., injections used to treat fibroids are hormonal analogues..... These medications are given for three to six months and induce a hypoestrogenic (low estrogen) state....they can shrink the fibroids by as much as 50%. Side effects of these drugs are similar to the symptoms of menopause and can include hot flashes, sleep disturbance, vaginal dryness, and mood changes.... The size of the fibroid and its precise location within the uterus are important factors in determining whether a fibroid causes obstetric complications.....
