other complications of uterine fibroids
While severe health complications from uterine fibroids are typically rare, some women can have unusually heavy menstrual bleeding that can lead to anemia. In many cases, anemia caused by heavy periods is often mild and easily treated with iron supplements and minor changes in diet. Overly large fibroids can put pressure on the bladder, resulting in kidney damage. Other issues include infertility or pregnancy loss, nausea, fatigue, and fever.
