• Womenin Canada with Fibroids

    Nearly 3 of 4 women will have experienced
    Fibroids by age 50.

    A significant number of those will endure life altering symptoms.

A Network of Canadian Women seeking information on Fibroids and the Treatments currently available for Fibroids in Canada.

Approved Treatments in Canada

Some of these treatments are approved in Canada but still not available due to hospital financial restrictions and so on. CanFib is always involved in lobbying to help get the equipment, treatments and people.

Ultimately, some women may need or opt for a hysterectomy. This is NOT giving up, this is a brave step for a woman who has very likely tried other methods and come to the end of the effectiveness line. Do not despair, a good surgeon will make darn sure you are taken care of and get your life back. CanFib is by no means opposed to surgery, we do though feel there needs to be more options presented. THAT is why we are here lobbying Health Canada, Physicians and Hospitals, to force open the doors to new treatment opportunity.
