Uterine leiomyomas/fibroids are among the most common problems in African women. They are a frequent cause of pelvic pain and abnormal uterine bleeding and are thought to be involved in infertility.

Myomectomy is the surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus. It allows the uterus to be left in place and, for some women, makes pregnancy more likely than before.

In general, myoma/fibroid growth is a result of the stimulation of estrogen, which is present until menopause. Many myomas begin to shrink as menopause removes the estrogen stimulation and many myoma-related symptoms resolve spontaneously shortly after menopause.
