Uterine Fibroids are benign tumors that grow within the muscle tissue of the uterus and affect approximately 20-40% of women 35 years and older. Uterine fibroids can cause symptoms such as excessive bleeding, pain and disfigurement which can persist until menopause if left untreated.
Women with uterine fibroids experience:
- Heavy or painful periods or bleeding between periods
- Feeling "full" in the lower abdomen
- Frequent urination
- Pain during sex
- Lower back pain
- Reproductive problems, such as infertility, multiple miscarriages or early labor
