When Should You Treat Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are only treated when the symptoms start presenting themselves. People can go many years without having any symptoms, though they often know that they have fibroids because they’ve had ultrasounds. Some people have found fibroids through ultrasounds done when they are pregnant. Until the fibroids start causing severe bleeding, pain, urinary frequency, and constipation, and they start getting very large in size, treatment is not necessary. We’ve treated women that feel like they’re four or five months pregnant because of the size of the fibroid itself, which is then compressing all of their organs. That’s when we would treat it. When there are symptoms impacting the quality of life, we can consider treatment. Learn more at
