In 2018 FKA twigs opened up about having surgery to remove six tumours from her uterus, saying she was "so scared". The singer says her "confidence as a woman was knocked" after an operation in December 18 to remove the fibroids. The 30-year-old paid tribute to other women with the common condition, describing them as "amazing warriors" who are "not alone".

She said the tumours were the size of two apples, three kiwis and a couple of strawberries.
"A fruit bowl of pain everyday. The nurse said that the weight and size was like being six months pregnant," she wrote.

Beverly, who rose to fame in the 1970s as the first African-American woman to be featured on the cover of Vogue, first discovered she had fibroid tumours when she was in her 30s. A decade later, the menstrual cramping and excessive bleeding became so severe that she dropped out of public life and stopped participating in her favourite activities.
After four years of illness, the supermodel has regained her health and is back in the spotlight as a successful business woman and the host of TV Land's She's Got the Look, a modelling competition for women 35 and older. She's also on a mission to get women to talk about - and better understand - what fibroids are and how they can be treated.
Beverley commented: “I can remember it like it was yesterday because it was really frightening. The doctor said, "I feel a tumor here," and I was like, "Excuse me?" He said, "They are fibroids. It is very normal." I was panicked. What do you mean? Where did it come from? And he said they don't know where it comes from.”

Cynthia Bailey sat down with Dr. Tiff and the crew on HLN to discuss her condition and the toll it took on her marriage from her perspective.
Cynthia: The fibroid thing had taken over my life…I literally felt like a pregnant lady all of the time that never delivered a baby, which kind of sucks.
Dr. Tiff: For a lot of women there’s a lot of bleeding involved.
Cynthia: I was anemic as well because of the heavy bleeding which meant, even if I did– well I just never felt like doing anything, let alone having sex.
Dr. Tiff: A period is seven days on fibroids. How did that impact your relationship?
Cynthia: I knew it was really a problem when Peter started feeling like low self esteem about our relationship. He started to say things like I feel like you’re not attracted to me anymore. You never want to do it anymore. I feel like when I snuggle up to you, you’re like ‘Please, please. I can’t.’
Dr. Tiff: And what was the real, what was the truth for you?
Cynthia: The truth is exactly what he said. That’s how I felt when I was dealing with it. I wanted to be left alone. I wanted to sleep when I could sleep. I did not have a high sex drive. And my husband is very attracted to me, he wants to have sex with me. And I wanted to have sex with me as well…
Dr. Tiff: How did you guys turn this around? And I’m sure you guys went into this in your new book Carry-On Baggage.
Cynthia: You know our joke is, ‘honey I want to have sex with you, my fibroid doesn’t want to have sex with you. Because this thing was really sucking the life out of me. And I had a very embarrassing accident at a huge Bravo event where I bled all over the place basically. And it just was–at that point– like I was embarrassed but Peter was mortified because he’s like ‘Babe, you can’t keep living like this.’ And even just mentally it was starting to be really depressing. So, finally I was just like I’m not going to do this anymore. I have to find an answer to this because it’s really taking over everything that I do. And I have to work. I don’t have time to sleep and be off.
Dr. Tiff: So you had the procedure so how are you now?
Cynthia:There was just a little procedure at the end. The recovery time was like 3 days. I felt better almost two weeks later. It was the best thing I ever did my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.
Dr. Tiff: How is the sex life now?
Cynthia: Oh, we’re doing it all the time now. He’s probably going to get some when I get home.
It’s great that Cynthia, in her position can talk about how it negatively affected her life, the embarrassment and how she ultimately found a solution.

How else can EmpressBody help with Fibroids?
Because every woman is so beautifully unique we have to point out that relieving the symptoms of fibroids will differ from woman to woman. But the EmpressBody Fibroids Fighter Bundle is made up of different elements that individually have soothing properties and as a combined treatment work together to relieve symptoms of fibroids.
The EmpressBody Fibroids Fighter Bundle contains:
18 Detox Pearls (this is the minimum amount we recommend although we advise 36 Detox Pearls for multiple fibroids that are medium-large in size). EmpressBody Detox Pearls work by using specially selected herbs creating a pulling effect that draws toxins, bad bacteria, dead cells, old bloodclots, mucus and more from your yoni while at the same time tightening your yoni and deterring vaginal dryness and other ailments.
One of the best benefits of EmpressBody Moringa Powder is its super immune-boosting powers. It contains an anti-inflammatory compound that improves digestion, strengthens bones, prevents blood clots, improves cardiovascular health which is beneficial for skin and hair care, mild detoxification; it also fulfils iron deficiencies and increases your natural immunity.
Spirulina offers health benefits for practically every organ and bodily function. Spirulina has long been revered for its ability to strengthen the immune system. Spirulina reduces Inflammation and eases PMS symptoms and also eases the passage of waste through the digestive system, thereby reducing stress on the entire system. Spirulina has been proven to really help with the symptoms of fibroids.
2 x Yoni Steam
EmpressBody’s Yoni Steaming is based on an ancient practice known to give menstrual support for dysmenorrhea (painful periods) and irregular periods. It can also clear dark menstrual blood from the beginning or ending of the cycle.
With the EmpressBody Fibroids Fighter Bundle we recommend that women do the full 18 EmpressBody Detox Pearls, this means inserting 6 pearls over a course of 24 days, each pearl you will use for 3 days not 2 to relieve the symptoms of fibroids and expel toxins. Women may experience cramping due to the fibroid tissue being broken down, but warm baths will help relieve the pain. Drink plenty of water and Moringa to help purify and encourage your body to function at its full potential and aid in preventing fibroid flare ups and achieve full yoni wellness.
