YANMD: Are there any
legit natural cures/treatments for fibroids? There are lots of sites out there saying such, but of course they are solely from the perspective of the person or company touting out the product. My surgical options are limited so I'm hoping for some sort of alternative.

I'm 29 and thanks to multiple fibroids I look like I'm 4 months pregnant. I'm already fat as it is, so it's really embarrassing for me (hence the anon post.) I want to get rid of them, but my gynecologist says I'd have to get an abdominal myomectomy, which would leave me with a really big scar on my bikini line. I honestly wouldn't mind getting a flat-out hysterectomy since I don't want any children, but of course no surgeon would do that. Either way, the bikini scar freaks me out. If there are any natural supplements that may be worth trying out, I'm willing to experiment. What has (or hasn't) worked for you?
Also, should I bring up to my doc about possibly going on a hormone treatment and then trying a laprascopic procedure, or am I completely and utterly SOL and will have to fend off the "When are you due?" inquiries until menopause?
