As far as symptoms go, in some cases there aren’€™t any. In my case, I did feel a little bit of pressure in my lower abdominal region, but that could also have been because I am extremely in tune with my body and notice even the slightest change. However, while fibroids do not always cause symptoms, their location and size can make life unbearable by the severity of the symptoms displayed. Some of these symptoms include:

  • Very heavy bleeding
  • Painful periods
  • Pelvic pain and pressure
  • Enlargement of the lower abdomen
  • Painful sex
  • Lower back pain and legs
  • Infertility
  • Frequent urge to urinate, from pressure to the bladder
  • Constipation and bloating, from pressure on the bowel
