We’ve been wanting to cover fibroids for the longest time, and specifically wanted to interview a black woman on this topic since African-American women have a higher prevalence of fibroids, and experience more severe symptoms and unique concerns. We were SO happy to find Dr. Soyini Hawkins, a board-certified, fellowship-trained Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgeon.
In This Episode We’ll Cover:
- Whether or not black women have a higher prevalence of fibroids
- Symptoms of fibroids and how to find out if you have them
- Ways to manage fibroids via lifestyle changes and/or medical treatment
- How to decide when fibroid surgery is appropriate & MORE!
- Dr. Hawkins site: http://www.getfibroidhelp.com
- National Institute of Health
- The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
