Uterine Fibroids

Fibroids are a form of non-cancerous growth that happens in the muscle cells of the uterus, thus forming a bulky uterus

Are you suffering from heavy menstrual periods? Does your menses last longer than normal? Are you going through frequent abdominal pain? If your answer to the above-mentioned questions is “Yes”, then you may have uterine fibroids.

Fibroids are a form of non-cancerous growth that happens in the muscle cells of the uterus, thus forming a bulky uterus. From one to many, women can have a different number of fibroids varying in size. It can be as smaller as a tiny seed to as larger as a bulky mass. These are found incidentally during pelvic examinations without a proper test. And after that, Imaging and lab tests are usually carried out to confirm the presence of these fibroids.

Approximately, 20-40% of women who have attained menopause suffer from fibroids. According to some doctors, this number is estimated to be even higher. In fact, only 25% of women with them actually face any symptoms. The nature of fibroids is usually non-dangerous, and they do not spread to other parts of the body but when they started showing symptoms, they can be severe.

Since most women having fibroids don’t experience any symptoms, it makes the condition even more serious. However, women who don’t experience any symptoms often have to make drastic lifestyle changes to deal with them. Suffering from fibroids can lead to uncertain menses which further make women to feel discomfort and uneasiness. And the most challenging aspect of this condition is the way it affects a woman’s peace of mind
