Uterine Fibroids: Symptoms, Treatment, and Care

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop within or on the muscular walls of the uterus.

Symptoms, Causes, and When to Seek Medical Help

Recognizing Symptoms

Common symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding which may result in anemia, prolonged periods, pelvic pain, frequent urination, and discomfort during intercourse. Some women may also experience pressure in the pelvic area, backaches, and even fertility issues.

Understanding Causes

Uterine fibroids are common among women of childbearing age. Fibroids are typically asymptomatic and will resolve on their own after menopause. However when symptoms do occur they can be debilitating. Symptoms vary based on size and number of fibroids and hormonal fluctuations. 

Potential Complications

Untreated fibroids can lead to complications such as anemia from heavy bleeding, severe pain, and reproductive challenges. 

Consulting a Specialist

If you notice any fibroid symptoms or have concerns about your reproductive health, it's essential to consult a healthcare professional. Early diagnosis can lead to more effective and less invasive treatment options.

Exploring Uterine Fibroid Treatment Options

Conservative Treatment Options

In patients with mild symptoms your gynecologist may provide options for medical management and or symptom management for your fibroid symptoms. 

Minimally Invasive Treatment Options

Options like Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)  offer ways to treat fibroids without surgery. These methods aim to shrink or eliminate fibroids with minimal discomfort. For women who wish to preserve fertility or who require treatment and wish for minimal downtime and reduced risk of complications should consider UFE.

Surgical Interventions

Hysterectomy and Myomectomy are traditional surgical options that have been shown to provide relief from fibroid symptoms.

These surgical options remove the fibroids and/or the entire uterus completely.
