Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids
For some women, especially those going through menopause, signs and symptoms of fibroids may seem non-existent. These symptoms can bring other problems of their own. For example, many patients with fibroids also deal with poor sleep from frequent urination or pressure on their bladder. Heavy menstruation can lead to anemia which causes fatigue and a general lack of energy.
Common symptoms of uterine fibroids include:
- Heavy and prolonged menstruation between or during your periods
- Anemia, which can lead to fatigue
- Pain during intercourse
- Frequent urination
- Constipation and/or bloating
- Pain in your pelvis or lower back
- Increased menstrual cramping
- Stomach swelling
Why You Shouldn’t Delay Fibroid Treatment
In the past, the only uterine fibroid treatment available was surgery, which would remove either part or all of the uterus. This influenced many women to use the “watch and wait” method. It’s important to remember that fibroids will not go away without treatment. When left untreated, they will continue to cause uncomfortable or painful symptoms. Over time, this chronic pain and discomfort may decrease as you approach menopause, but this is not a guarantee.
In order to effectively manage fibroid symptoms, treatment is necessary. At USA Fibroid Centers, we offer a minimally-invasive treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), which has been proven to be just as effective as fibroid surgery.
If you’re sitting at home suffering in pain from your uterine fibroid symptoms, give us a call to see how you can benefit from our online doctor consultations. Once you schedule your online visit, your treatment procedure is only one appointment away.
