Emotional support may be just as important as medical treatment for dealing with the chronic symptoms and potential reproductive problems associated with fibroids. Many women find that joining a support group and talking to other women who have fibroids helps them come to terms with their condition.

Hospitals and health clinics may offer support groups for women and families affected by fibroids. Your health care provider may be able to refer you to a support group. You may also find it helpful to work with a “professional listener,” such as a social worker, a psychologist, a psychiatrist, or another mental health professional.
