What are the Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids?

The symptoms of uterine fibroids completely depend on the number of tumors a woman has. Their location and size are also major factors. For example, submucosal fibroids may lead to heavy menstrual bleeding and troubles in having pregnancy.

Women having smaller tumors or the ones who have already attained menopause, may not face any symptoms because fibroids may shrink during or post-menopause as they experience a drop in their estrogen and progesterone levels which use to stimulate their growth. Uterine fibroids symptoms include-

  1. Prolonged, heavy or abnormal menstrual bleeding which often leads to the possibility of anaemia.
  2. Severe pain in the pelvis. Pain in back and legs are also a symptom in many cases.
  3. Pain during physical intercourse
  4. Pressure in the bladder leads to frequent urge to urinate
  5. Constipation due to pressure in the bowel
  6. Abnormal abdominal swelling
