If you are eating healthy and working out and still can’t reach your ideal weight, there might be other health conditions causing the delay. Sometimes women health problems such as uterine fibroids are the biggest stumbling block in the way of enjoying a well toned body and waistline. Fibroids are benign growths inside or outside the walls of the uterus. According to Mayo Clinic, as many as three in four women will experience uterine fibroid tumors. Although benign fibroids present many challenging symptoms such as prolonged menstrual periods that continues for more than a week, abdominal pain and cramps, frequent urination, pelvic pain and pressure and enlarged abdomen. Although it is unclear why fibroids develop, several factors may influence their development such as hormones, family history and pregnancy. Uterine fibroids start out small but can grow very fast and get very large in size resembling a 6 months pregnancy; This change in the body size can cause a woman to feel frustrated. Heavy and prolonged menstrual bleeding can lead to anemia causing tiredness and fatigue; affecting your motivation to workout due to lack of energy.
