What Are Uterine Fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the muscle tissue of the uterus. Fibroids can range in number and size from a single growth to multiple growths, and from very small to large. As many as 70% to 80% of all women will have fibroids by age 50 and it is more rampant among black women than their white counterparts. The medical term for fibroids is leiomyoma or myoma.
Symptoms of Fibroids: Pressure
Fibroids may cause very mild symptoms, none at all in some cases or symptoms can be severe in some other cases. In women who do feel symptoms, fibroid growths can cause;
- Pressure on the bladder or rectum
- Frequent urination
- Constipation and/or rectal pain
- Lower back and/or abdominal pain
- If fibroids become very large, they can distend the stomach, making a woman look pregnant.
Symptoms of Fibroids: Period Changes
Fibroids may also cause changes to a woman’s period, including;
- Mild to severe cramping and pain
- Heavier bleeding, sometimes with blood clots
- Longer or more frequent menstruation
- Spotting or bleeding between periods.
Fibroids or Endometriosis?
Please note: fibroids are one cause of severe menstrual pain in women. However, the pain also can be caused by endometriosis. Endometriosis occurs when tissue from the inner lining of the uterus grows in other parts of the body. This tissue breaks down and bleeds during your period, causing painful scar tissue. The pain of fibroids or endometriosis also can occur between periods.
Who Gets Fibroids?
While it’s unclear why women develop fibroids, some patterns have been observed and some of them are as follows;
- Fibroids usually occur in women between the ages of 30 and 40.
- They are more common in black women.
- They grow more quickly and appear at a younger age in black women.
- Having a family member with fibroids increases a woman’s risk.
- Being overweight or obese and having high blood pressure also may increase your risks.
Complications: Fibroids and Anaemia
Some women with fibroids who experience unusually heavy bleeding during their periods may become anaemic. Many cases of anaemia due to iron deficiency from periods are mild and can be treated with a change in diet and iron supplement pills. Untreated anaemia can lead to fatigue and lethargy…and, in severe cases, heart problems.
Complications: Getting Pregnant
Fibroids usually do not interfere with fertility and pregnancy. However, some women with fibroids experience more pregnancy complications and delivery risks. Fibroids may cause miscarriage, cause the baby to be in an abnormal position and can cause preterm labour. They may also cause pelvic pain and heavy bleeding after delivery, which may require surgery. In some instances, fibroids may block your fallopian tubes. Fibroids growing along the inner uterine wall may make it difficult for a fertilised egg to attach.
