Uterine Fibroids are benign tumors that grow within the muscle tissue of the uterus and affect approximately 20-40% of women 35 years and older. Uterine fibroids can cause symptoms such as excessive bleeding, pain and disfigurement which can persist until menopause if left untreated.
Women with uterine fibroids experience:
Heavy or painful periods or bleeding between periods
Feeling "full" in the lower abdomen
Pain during sex
Lower back pain
Reproductive problems, such as infertility, multiple miscarriages or early labor
