Fibroid Series Part II-The Symptoms   Fibroid location & size influence your signs and symptoms: In women who have symptoms, the most common symptoms of uterine fibroids include: Heavy menstrual bleeding Prolonged menstrual periods — seven days or more of menstrual bleeding Pelvic pressure or pain Frequent urination Difficulty emptying your bladder Constipation Backache or leg pains Rarely, a fibroid can cause acute pain when it outgrows its blood supply. Deprived of nutrients, the fibroid begins to die. Byproducts from a degenerating fibroid can seep into surrounding tissue, causing pain and fever. A fibroid that hangs by a stalk inside or outside the uterus (pedunculated fibroid) can trigger pain by twisting on its stalk and cutting off its blood supply. The possible causes: When I started researching Fibroids, I started to feel very depressed & overwhelmed, by how many of the possible causes were all around us. What affected me the worst, was how products containing ingredients suspected of causing, or aggravating this condition, are still on the shelves. There’s plenty, on-going research, & theories abound, as to the causes of Uterine Fibroids. Ranging from enviromental hazzards to sudden increase or excessive estrogen in the body. I can only talk about what my experience was, & what my deductions are regarding my particular case.
