Re: Ella morning-after pill for Fibroids??

I would be very careful. As I understand it, the morning after pill is basically a high dose BCP and would not be a good idea on a long term basis.

There are different types of fibroids and I doubt very much that the morning after pill would produce the relief you are looking for.

It's a new morning-after pill called Ella. It actually blocks hormones and progesterone. Study was just released 4 days ago saying it can shrink fibroids. Wondering if anyone has tried it??

Re: Ella morning-after pill for Fibroids??

Good Article. Sounds promising, but you will have to ask your doctor about it. Often, drugs still have to go through the FDA approval process before they can be used for treatments other than what they were originally approved for. Since the study just came out, it may not have been through the process yet.

I would certainly give it a try if I had to do it all over again.
