DO YOU HAVE UTERINE FIBROIDS?

Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus. They are very common, affecting up to 70-80% of women by age 50. Women experiencing symptoms from their uterine fibroids experience excessive pain and may also have heavy menstrual bleeding that lasts longer than average. Other symptoms may include pain with intercourse, urinary frequency, and bloating. Fibroids can range in size from small (the size of an apple seed) to quite large (the size of a grapefruit). In rare cases, fibroids can grow so large they can cause complications with the bladder and rectum.
