Fibroids

Fibroids are a very common, non-cancerous growth in the uterus. Depending on their size and location, they may cause heavy and painful periods, as well as bulk-related symptoms like urinary frequency, abdominal distention and a feeling of pressure or fullness.

Fibroid Symptoms

Many women who have fibroids don’t experience any symptoms.
For those who do, the most common fibroids symptoms include:

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Periods lasting more than one week
  • Pelvic pain and/or pressure
  • Frequent urination
  • Difficulty emptying the bladder
  • Constipation
  • Back or leg pains
  • Bloating or abdominal distention
  • Anaemia
  • Lack of energy

If you’re experiencing one or more of these fibroids symptoms, you may require treatment.
