Great list -- thanks! I would also add an article I read on the women to women dot com site for women interested in taking a more natural/holistic approach to fibroids:

My fibroids were discovered after I had a c-section with dd #2. I basically ignored them for over a year after this discovery, but irregular periods, etc. have led me to think that now is the time to do something about the fibroids and I don't want to have a hysterectomy. Glad I found your blog -- these links go to some really valuable info. Thanks!
