Uterine fibroids

I recently found out fibroids are growing on my uterus, which is common for most women, however most women won't know they have them. Mine are problematic and cause excessive bleeding, I go through 4-5 tampons in an hour! I'm still going through tests to see what needs to be done. Does anyone else have fibroids this bad? If so, how do you cope and what was your action plan? I'm really hoping I don't need a hysterectomy, I'm 32 and still want to have at least 1 baby!
