What are the symptoms of uterine fibroids?


In many cases, women with fibroids don't experience any symptoms. However, women who do show symptoms often find them debilitating. Symptoms will vary for every individual and is based on the location, size, and number of fibroids, but the most common signs typically include:

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Painful periods
  • Frequent urination
  • Feeling like you can't fully empty your bladder
  • Constipation
  • Pain during sex
  • Lower back pain
  • Pelvic pressure or feeling full
  • Enlargement of the lower abdomen

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.
