How Can Uterine Fibroids Affect My Sex Life

What Are the Different Types of Fibroids

There are four different types of fibroids, discernable by certain characteristics that present with symptoms. Fibroids on the inside of the uterine wall are called submucosal. These fibroids typically cause tons of bleeding, where women are changing extremely saturated overnight pads or diapers, or pads inside of diapers every four hours, with all kinds of severe bleeding, anemia, blood transfusions, and iron infusions. Then there are intramural fibroids, which are inside the walls of the uterus. These typically have bleeding and pain correlated with them.
