A pensive woman thinking about difference between fibroids and endometriosis.

There are several causes of pelvic pain including fibroids and endometriosis. Some of the symptoms for each of these conditions are similar or even the same, but these are two different conditions. Endometriosis is a painful, chronic disease which occurs when the inner lining of the (endometrium) starts growing outside the uterus. Fibroids are muscular growths that grow inside or outside the uterus.

Some of the symptoms of fibroids and endometrioses are:


  • Heavy or prolonged menstrual periods
  • Abnormal bleeding between periods
  • Frequent urination
  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Constipation and bloating


  • Pain before and during periods
  • Infertility
  • Fatigue
  • Painful urination during periods
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Painful bowel movement during periods

At USA Fibroid Centers we offer an FDA approved, minimally invasive and non-surgical fibroid treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) during which the blood supply to the fibroid is blocked and the tumor eventually dies and the symptoms disappear.
