Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumors of the uterus. Their main symptoms are prolonged menstrual bleeding, leading over time to a secondary anemia, bleeding and spotting between periods, pelvic pain and infertility. It is recognized that fibroids are the most common indication for surgery in gynecology. Currently radical surgical treatment of fibroids is abandon. Ulipristalu acetate is used in pharmacological treatment. This medicine reduces the growth of fibroids. New non-invasive technique is also MR-guided focused ultrasound surgery using thermal tissue destruction by focusing ultrasound beam. Ability to avoid the often crippling surgery makes conservative methods increasingly popular.

Key words: uterine fibroids, conservative treatment
