Dr. Abayomi Ajayi – ‘Being a Virgin does not protect us from fibroid’

Medical Director and Chief Executive Officer at Nordica Fertility Centre, Dr. Abayomi Ajayi, had said virginity does not protect a woman from having fibroids.

He said this on Thursday while speaking on Nigerian Info 99.3 FM‘s Morning Crossfire show.

Talking about fibroids, The doctor stated that; being a virgin does not stop a woman from being diagnosed with fibroids.


“The older a woman gets before she has a baby, the more prone she becomes to having fibroids.

“The older you become before you have a baby, the higher the chance that you’ll have fibroids.

“Pregnancy supplements, also, are not a factor that leads to fibroids.

He went on saying;

“Fibroid is a “natural lifetime risk”, as the condition has nothing to do with a woman’s sexual activity or what she takes in or not.

“Fibroids can be managed or treated. He pointed out the factors that determine the techniques that will be deployed.

“There are many options when it comes to management and the things that we look out for are the symptoms, the size of the fibroid, the location of the fibroid, and the woman’s fertility aspirations.

“These are the things that sharpen the way we go about managing patients with fibroids.

He also pointed out that not all fibroids need to be treated.

“There’s what we call expectant management; where you really don’t do anything. You just follow the fibroids and see whether It’s going to be in the way or if it’s better left like that.

He further revealed that another way to manage fibroids is the use of drugs.

He said, “Usually, the drugs that you use for fibroids are not useful for those who still want to have babies and get pregnant because these drugs can prevent you from getting pregnant.”

Lastly, he suggested fibroids can be treated through surgical operation.
