About Uterine Fibroids
Affecting over 25% of women of reproductive age, uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumours that develop in or on the muscular walls of the uterus and are among the most common reproductive tract tumours in women. In addition to an individual’s genetic predisposition, estrogens are well known to play an important role in the regulation of fibroid growth.
Although uterine fibroids are benign tumours, they can cause debilitating symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding (frequently resulting in anaemia and fatigue), pain (including painful periods, abdominal pain, painful intercourse, backache), increased abdominal girth and bloating, urinary frequency or retention, constipation, pregnancy loss, and, in some cases, infertility. These symptoms can also lead to loss of productivity at work, limitations in normal activities of daily living, and social embarrassment.For more information on uterine fibroids visit https://ufperspectives.com
