I just read somewhere that taking RRL while having fibroids is contraindicated.
I am taking the Rainbow Light Prenantal System (the 6 a day kind) that has RRL in it. I have several fibroids and an irritable uterus that contracts (unproductively) ALL the time.

Is this amount of RRL something I should worry about? WHat is the connection anyway?

i haven't heard of this specific contraindication before. RRL is a uterine tonic, and some women find that regular use gives them mild contractions. i did. so, with the relevant risk of pre-term labor with fibroids, i suppose there would be a theoretical contraindication. i'd be curious to know though about actual cases.
