Uterine Fibroids and Pelvic Pain

At Estrogenica, we understand that each woman’s experience with uterine fibroids and pelvic pain is unique. We know that these conditions are not just clinical diagnoses. They are personal experiences that can disrupt your work, affect your emotional well-being, and hinder your day-to-day activities. Our compassionate approach goes beyond conventional treatments. We strive to focus on understanding how fibroids affect you personally and tailor our care to fit your individual needs.

What Are Fibroids?

Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that attach to the smooth muscle cells in the wall of the uterus. While these growths are benign and not associated with cancer, they are one of the most common types of pelvic tumors in women and can occur at any time during a woman’s reproductive years. They are most commonly found in women between the ages of 30 to 50.

The impact of fibroids on a woman’s health and daily life can vary from person to person. Some women may not experience symptoms and may only discover their fibroids during routine gynecological exams. 

However, depending on their size, number, and location, fibroids can lead to a range of uncomfortable or even completely debilitating symptoms for others. Large fibroids can cause a great deal of swelling and discomfort in the abdomen. In contrast, submucosal fibroids, which develop under the lining of the uterine cavity, can lead to very heavy and painful menstruation.

Despite their prevalence, the exact cause of fibroids is still not fully understood. However, factors like hormonal imbalances, genetic changes, and other growth factors are believed to play a role.

What are the Symptoms of Fibroids?

Common symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding and unusually long periods that can lead to anemia, which can cause fatigue and weakness. Pelvic pain is also a common symptom and can range from mild discomfort to severe pain that can interfere with daily activities. Some women also report a sensation of pressure or fullness in the lower abdomen, similar to feelings of bloating.

Other symptoms might include frequent urination due to the pressure that the fibroids can put on the bladder and constipation caused by their pressure on the bowels and rectum. For women who are pregnant, fibroids can cause complications with pregnancy and labor, which may result in the need for a cesarean delivery.
