Abstract



Uterine fibroids are common among our women. Several local alternative treatments with varying adverse health implications have been reported. We present a case of a nullipara who developed massive haematometra from herbal treatment for symptomatic uterine fibroids. She had earlier declined surgery in our clinic. She eventually had uterine exploration, evacuation and myomectomy. The need for a wide scale public education on the nature and treatment of uterine fibroids and the necessity of utilizing the newer and less invasive treatment modalities to reduce the health risks associated with aversion for major surgeries are highlighted.
