Uterine fibroids are the most common tumor of the female reproductive tract. Although non-cancerous, they cause significant harm to nearby organs as well as anemia due to heavy menstrual bleeding. These benign tumors are also known as uterine myomas
. Several factors may influence their formation, such as hormones and genetics. It is estimated that 8-33% women develop fibroids during their child bearing years. Common symptoms of fibroids are heavy, prolonged and painful menstrual periods, lower back pain, pelvic pressure and pain during intercourse
. Patients with fibroids also suffer from poor sleep due to frequent urination from fibroid pressure on the urinary bladder. Heavy menstruation
can cause anemia
and general lack of energy. These symptoms often impact a woman’s social life, work, family interactions, sex life and even lead to depression
and low self-confidence.
