What causes uterine fibroids?

There is no clear cause behind the development of fibroids but there are several factors which may influence the formation of fibroids. Causes of uterine fibroids include-

  1. Hormones: Hormones including estrogen and progesterone are produced by women’s ovaries. These hormones lead the uterine lining to regenerate during every menstrual cycle and may stimulate the growth of fibroids.
  1. Family History: The condition of uterine fibroids may run in the family. If your family members including your grandmother, sister or mother has had a history of fibroids, then you may develop it as well.
  1. Pregnancy: Pregnancy increases the production of estrogen and progesterone hormones in a woman’s body as a result of which, fibroids may grow and develop rapidly during pregnancy.

These are some of the major causes of uterine fibroids.
