Results: - the majority of women in two groups were complained from bleeding (65.2% in control group and 60.6% in study group). 54.5 % of control group and 42.4% of study group had fibroid as a medical diagnosis. The highest frequency women (60.6% in control group and 43.9% in study group) had 1-6 month as time of current complained. The women in the study group were less likely to suffer from complications as fever, vaginal prolapse and pneumothorax compared to those in control group. Differences observed are statistically significant P= (0.023, 0.049, 0.004).
