That time of the month is not expected to be enjoyable, but it shouldn’t knock you down. Uterine fibroids can cause a woman to experience extremely painful periods. Women who have symptomatic fibroids often have to call off of work or skip social events because of the pain, and usually heavy bleeding. This can impact a woman’s life dramatically especially when it happens every month and the symptoms only become worse. Sometimes, when a woman also experiences bleeding in between periods, it feels like it’s never ending. The good news is that fibroid is treatable – going through the recommended treatment for fibroids will relieve you of your symptoms like heavy bleeding, pelvic pain, and constipation. This will improve your quality of life tremendously.
Don’t Ignore the Symptoms
It is important for any woman having debilitating pain during her period to see her doctor. This is a major symptom of uterine fibroids and the only way to truly solve the problem is to treat the fibroid itself. Other common fibroid symptoms are-
- Pelvic Pain and Pressure
- Anemia causing fatigue
- Pelvic pain and pressure
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Frequent urination
- Constipation and bloating
- Heavy Bleeding (discussed above)
