What Are Uterine Fibroids?

Uterine fibroids, or leiomyomas, are non-cancerous growths that develop in the uterus, often during reproductive years. Composed of muscle and fibrous tissue, they vary in size and location: intramural (within the uterine wall), subserosal (outside the uterus), submucosal (under the uterine lining), and pedunculated (on a stalk).

Symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, frequent urination, and reproductive issues. Although their exact cause is unknown, factors like hormones and genetics play a role. Treatment options range from watchful waiting and medications to non-invasive procedures and surgery, depending on symptom severity and reproductive goals.

Symptoms and Signs of Fibroids

Menstrual Symptoms

  • Heavy Menstrual Bleeding: Prolonged and excessive menstrual bleeding, sometimes with clots.
  • Menstrual Periods Lasting More Than a Week: Extended duration of periods.

Pelvic Discomfort

  • Pelvic Pain and Pressure: Persistent pain or a feeling of pressure in the pelvic area.
  • Lower Back Pain: Pain in the lower back, often related to the size and position of fibroids.

Urinary Symptoms

  • Frequent Urination: The need to urinate more often due to pressure on the bladder.
  • Difficulty Emptying the Bladder: Inability to fully empty the bladder, leading to urinary retention.

Gastrointestinal Symptoms

  • Constipation: Difficulty with bowel movements due to pressure on the rectum.
  • Bloating: A feeling of fullness or bloating in the abdomen.

Reproductive Issues

  • Infertility: Difficulty conceiving or maintaining a pregnancy.
  • Complications: Increased risk of miscarriage, preterm birth, and complications during labor.

Pain and Discomfort During Activities

  • Pain During Intercourse: Discomfort or pain during sexual activity.
  • Leg Pain: Fibroids pressing on nerves can cause pain radiating down the legs.


These hormones, which stimulate the development of the uterine lining during each menstrual cycle, appear to promote the growth of fibroids. Fibroids contain more estrogen and progesterone receptors than normal uterine muscle cells, and they tend to shrink after menopause due to decreased hormone levels.

A family history of fibroids increases the likelihood of developing them. Specific genetic changes have been found in fibroid cells that differ from normal uterine muscle cells.

Substances that help the body maintain tissues, such as insulin-like growth factor, may affect fibroid growth.

This material makes cells stick together and is increased in fibroids. ECM stores growth factors and causes biological changes in cells.

Fibroids are more common as women age, particularly during their 30s and 40s through menopause. After menopause, fibroids typically shrink.

African-American women are more likely to develop fibroids than women of other ethnicities, and they often develop them at a younger age and with more severe symptoms.

 A diet high in red meat and low in green vegetables, fruit, and dairy may increase the risk of fibroids.

Being overweight increases the risk of fibroids.

Insufficient levels of vitamin D may be associated with an increased risk of fibroids.

Risk Factors

Fibroids are most common in women during their reproductive years, particularly in their 30s and 40s. The risk decreases after menopause.

African-American women are more likely to develop fibroids compared to women of other ethnic backgrounds. They also tend to develop fibroids at a younger age and experience more severe symptoms.

A family history of fibroids increases the risk. If a woman's mother or sister had fibroids, her chances of developing them are higher.

Higher levels of these hormones, which regulate the menstrual cycle, are linked to fibroid growth. Conditions that increase hormone levels, such as early onset of menstruation, may raise the risk.

Consuming a diet high in red meat and low in green vegetables, fruit, and dairy products may increase the risk of fibroids.

Drinking alcohol, particularly beer, is associated with a higher risk of developing fibroids.

Being overweight or obese increases the likelihood of developing fibroids. Excess body fat can lead to higher levels of estrogen.

Insufficient levels of vitamin D are linked to a higher risk of fibroids.

Women who have never given birth are at a higher risk of developing fibroids compared to those who have had one or more pregnancies.

Some studies suggest that high blood pressure may be associated with an increased risk of fibroids.

Early onset of menstruation is linked to a higher risk of developing fibroids later in life.


Medical History and Physical Examination

  • Medical History: The doctor will ask about your symptoms, menstrual history, and any family history of fibroids or other reproductive conditions.
  • Pelvic Examination: During a pelvic exam, the doctor will check for abnormalities in the shape and size of your uterus, which may indicate the presence of fibroids.

Imaging Tests


  • Transabdominal Ultrasound: A device that is moved over your abdomen to create images of the uterus.
  • Transvaginal Ultrasound: A probe is inserted into the vagina to get closer images of the uterus. This is often more accurate for detecting fibroids.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI):

  • Provides detailed images of the uterus and helps determine the size, number, and location of fibroids. MRI is especially useful for planning surgical treatments.

Hysterosonography (Saline Infusion Sonography):

  • A saline solution is injected into the uterine cavity to expand it, providing a clearer view of the uterine lining and any fibroids present.


  • A dye is injected into the uterine cavity and fallopian tubes, which are then viewed on X-ray images. This can show abnormalities in the uterus, including fibroids.


  • A thin, lighted telescope (hysteroscope) is inserted through the vagina and cervix into the uterus. This allows direct visualization of the uterine cavity and any fibroids.

Additional Tests

Blood Tests:

  • It may be conducted to check for anemia if you have heavy menstrual bleeding. Hormonal tests may also be performed to rule out other conditions.

  • Oral contraceptives and progestins: Help control menstrual bleeding.

Non-Hormonal Treatments:
