Fibroids affect approximately three out of four American women. Many women dismiss symptoms of fibroids (also known as myomas) including, heavy monthly periods, pain or pressure between the hip bones or back of the legs, a frequent need to urinate, constipation and bloating and an enlarged abdomen. Fibroid related symptoms cause women to lose an estimated 2-4 million days of productivity a year. African-American women, and those of any race with a family history, are more likely to develop fibroids than other women. It’s estimated that between 50% and 80% of African-American women will develop fibroids. Fibroids are the #1 reason for hysterectomy in this country— up to 75% of hysterectomies done are for this non-cancerous condition that can be treated without surgery!

Community Health Talk in Albany, GA

UFE & Fibroid Expert Dr. John Lipman traveled to Albany, GA on Saturday, March 3rd to speak to members of the Albany community as well as members of Trumpet of God Ministries and Training Center where Apostle Charlene Glover is pastor.

Despite a tornado watch for the Albany area, dozens of women came out to hear Dr. Lipman. The Mayor of Albany, Dorothy Hubbard was also in attendance. Many of the women who listened to Dr. Lipman's address said they had never heard of UFE  (Uterine Fibroid Embolization). They said they now feel armed with the information they need to make informed decisions about their health.
