Fibroids are non-cancerous growth of tissues inside and out of uterus wall, within the uterine cavity. The cells do not spread (benign) and formed from uterus cells through abnormal growth. They vary from a size of peanut to size of a grapefruit and can be formed at any wall/part of the uterus. The positioning and their names accordingly are represented in the image below.

Symptoms of fibroids are:

  • Prolonged menstrual bleeding (more than 7 days usually)
  • Heavy bleeding
  • More than normal level of menstrual cramps
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Feeling of fullness in lower abdomen
  • When the size of the fibroid is large, the belly would look bulged like in pregnancy
  • Prolonged constipation
  • Infertility, where it affects the process of implantation or the process of fetal growth. This happens in very rare conditions.
  • Pain during urination
  • Leakage of urine
