    hey @sunflora , I was diagnosed because I always had heavy periods... very heavy, but 2 years ago, I had lumps in my abdomen which they thought was a hernia.
    I got an ultrasound and it turned out to be a whole pile of fibroids... which have now grown and grown and grown.
    :(
    no pain.
    just lots of bleeding... and cramps during that time of the month

    HAPPY NEW YRS ALL!!!!
    @Chicoro Sure I will!!!! I'm def a convert and will be in the 2019 thread for sure!!!! I'm in love with this journey thanx to you all. I'm constantly learning something new about my hair. I'm even in love with my shea mix for my skin. It's improved my skin game by leaps and bounds. I swear it's even tightening up and fading my stretch marks. My skin is radiant for the first time in my life. I follow the routine in the skin care vid you posted but don't use the clay. Just wet brushing once a wk to exfoliate and then shea mix or a scrub then shea. It's great for oily facial skin too!!!!

    And if you really want the stretch marks to fade to nothing-ness (I know thats not a real word :lachen:), incorporate coffee in your Shea Mix. I have some coffee oil that I originally made for my hair, but I started using it in my body Shea mix and you can barely see my stretch marks now. And some of them are super old (like over 20 years old).

    Get you some dark roasted coffee beans....I like to grind a few up too & steep them in a Ceramide rich oil (Safflower, Sunflower, grapeseed or Ricebran). And use that oil in your body shea mix. Especially after you've done your body brushing and all that new skin is exposed. :2inlove:

    I had a vaginal ultrasound done and that’s when they were discovered. And when I say they, I mean in excess of 10.

    I put it all in a large glass mason jar, stick it on top of my wax/candle warmer for around 3 days, shake it all up then move it to the top of my closet for a few months. But you don't have to wait that long. However, the longer it sits....the stronger it will be. I do all my herbal oils this particular way.
