The Fibroid Center at Boston Medical Center will provide exceptional care to patients with uterine fibroids through a multidisciplinary, patient-centered, and evidence-based approach.

  • 70-80 percent of people with uteruses will develop uterine fibroids by age 50, of which 25-50 percent of whom will develop symptoms. 
  • Black women experience symptoms and diagnosis at an earlier age and larger, more numerous fibroids.

Fibroid Management Tool

If you have been diagnosed with uterine fibroids, this interactive tool can help you learn more about treatment options. Always talk to your doctor before starting a new treatment.

Centering Patients with Fibroids

Here at the Fibroid Center, we have adapted the CenteringPregnancy group education program developed by Centering Healthcare Institute to provide education, empowerment, and community to patients with fibroids here at BMC. Our eight-week Centering Patients with Fibroids (CPWF) program discusses topics including symptoms, treatment options, environmental factors, mental health, and patient advocacy. 

CPWF is currently rolling out as a research study funded by the federal Office on Women’s Health. We are recruiting for our final research-funded cohort to begin in October of 2024, and working with partners at BMC, Emory University/Grady Hospital in Atlanta, and fibroid nonprofit The White Dress Project to develop a long-term sustainability plan for this program.
