Fibroids seem to be noncancerous growths that form in or near the womb (uterus). The growth and development are made of muscle and fibrous tissue and vary in size. They are also referred to as uterine myomas or leiomyomas.

Because there are no symptoms, many women are unaware they have fibroids. Women who do have symptoms (roughly one in every three) can experience:

Lower back pain.

A frequent urination.

Heavy periods or painful periods.

Constipation.

Pains or discomfort during sex.

Tummy (abdominal) pain.

Further complications caused by fibroids may affect pregnancy or cause infertility in rare cases. Since fibroids rarely cause symptoms, they are sometimes discovered by chance during a routine gynaecological examination, test, or scan. However, if you have recurring fibroids symptoms, see the doctor so that they can examine potential causes.

There are also drugs used to aid in the shrinkage of fibroids. If these do not work, surgery or other less invasive procedures might be suggested.
