What Are Uterine Fibroids?

Fibroids are thick muscle tissues that either grows within the uterine walls (Intramural), inside the uterine lining (Submucosal) or outside the uterine lining (Subserosal). These tumour like tissues are 99% non-cancerous and is prevalent amongst most women under reproductive-age.

Signs and Symptoms of Fibroids

While most women who have fibroids may not experience any kind of symptoms, others might experience severe Fibroids symptoms, the most common being:

  • Menorrhagia (Heavy and painful periods)
  • Pain during Sexual Intercourse.
  • Lower Back and Pelvic Pain.
  • Frequent Urination and Constipation
  • Fertility issues or repeated miscarriage.


Tests for Identifying Fibroids

A routine pelvic exam usually suffices for diagnosis of Fibroids. However, some of the tests that a gynaecologist may administer to detect Fibroids includes;

  • Transvaginal Ultrasound Scan
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
  • Hysteroscopy.
  • Hysterosalpingography.


How Can We Help?

As a gynaecologist in London, Mr N. Agarwal offers the following tests that help identify Fibroids:

  • Complete Abdominal and Pelvic Examination.
  • Full Blood Count.
  • Serum Ferritin.
  • Pelvic Ultrasound Scan.


Treatment for Fibroids

In most cases, treatment is not necessary as Fibroids usually stop growing or shrink during menopause. However, treatment might be recommended if the symptoms are severe. A earlier detection of Fibroids can avoid complications later on. As such, we recommend a regular well woman health screening and sexual health check-up for women of all ages.

FAQ’s on Fibroids Tests And Monitoring

How can I get rid of Fibroids naturally?
While some uterine fibroids shrink/disappear during menopause, others (if not severe) may not require any treatment at all. There is little scientific evidence to support the claim that natural remedies can treatments fibroids. However, some women do try dietary & lifestyle changes, exercise, as well as herbal medicines to treat fibroids naturally. The effectiveness of these methods is not confirmed. However, some of these methods can help relieve the symptoms associated with fibroids such as painful periods.
Can you get rid of fibroids without surgery?

Yes, you can. Depending on the severity or size, your healthcare provider will recommend effective fibroids treatment. Some of the treatments for fibroids without surgery includes medication and IUD.

Can exercise shrink fibroids?

There is no comprehensive research done which indicates that exercise can shrink fibroids. But, a regular exercise routine can help alleviate the symptoms of fibroids. Exercise can help you regulate your hormones and aid in weight loss, which, in turn, can prevent the growth of fibroids.

Can fibroids stop your menstrual cycle?

In rare instances, fibroids or polyp can block the flow of menstrual blood or cause secondary amenorrhea. Read here to know more. However, in most cases, uterine fibroids are one of the reasons for heavy and painful periods.

Do fibroids cause cramping?

If the fibroids are large, they can cause pain and pressure in the lower back and pelvis area. Fibroids can cause heavy & painful menstrual bleeding (sometimes with clots), which can result in mild to severe cramping. It can also cause pain during intercourse.

Do fibroids affect periods?

Yes, it does! One of the reasons for heavy periods is uterine fibroids. Fibroids can compress the veins in the uterine wall, increasing pressure and expanding the uterus lining, which results in abnormal bleeding. Typically, heavy and prolonged periods with clots are caused by intramural and submucosal fibroids.

Can you get pregnant if you have fibroids?

Yes, you can. Most women with fibroids can have a natural and healthy pregnancy. However, to reduce the risk of any complications, if you are diagnosed with fibroids, then seeking the help of a specialist is important to monitor the growth and treat it if necessary.

Also, uterine fibroids are one of the causes of infertility in women. So, if you are unable to conceive, then undergoing diagnosis for fibroids is essential to rule out the possibility.

Can you see fibroids on ultrasound?

Transvaginal Ultrasound scan is one of the methods for detecting fibroids. Through an ultrasound scan, your healthcare provider will be able to identify where the fibroids are located in the uterus and how big it is.

Can fibroids cause weight gain?

In some women, unexplained weight gain or swelling of the abdomen can be a sign of fibroids. The larger the fibroid, the more bloated you may look. Weight gain can be caused due to hormonal imbalance. However, to identify if fibroids are the reason for unexplained weight gain, undergoing testing for fibroids is important.

Should fibroids be removed?

Generally, there is no treatment required to remove fibroids as they shrink or stop growing on their own. However, depending on the symptoms and the size of fibroids, your healthcare provider may recommend a surgical procedure to remove fibroids.
