What do Fibroids Signs & Symptoms Mean?
Uterine fibroids are the most common form of benign tumor that women face. About 70-80% of women will suffer uterine fibroids until the age of 50, one or more times. They have no relation to cancer, however, they can still present themselves as a nuisance within the female body. Though studies label them harmless, these tumors are rarely ever harmless and can either be tiny or weigh several pounds in some extreme cases, and weigh in on your life more than ever. The sooner the fibroids are discovered, the easier it is to eliminate them.
Let’s talk through some symptoms, and what they indicate:
Menorrhagia / Intense Menstrual Bleeding
Most women have normal menstrual cycles. For the sake of reference, a normal cycle should last no more than 5 days with a maximum blood loss of between 2 to 3 tablespoons. This amounts to approximately 30 to 50 milliliters. An overnight pad holds about 10 mls of blood. Anything above 5 tablespoons / 80 mls is considered Menorrhagia.
Menorrhagia is menstrual bleeding that lasts more than 7 days. It can also be bleeding that is very heavy. How do you know if you have heavy bleeding? If you need to change your pad after less than 2 hours or you pass clots the size of a quarter or larger, that is heavy bleeding.
You can feel uterine fibroids on the bladder due to the proximity of the two organs. Small fibroids may cause slight pressure. Larger ones can cause frequent urination or pain in the lower stomach area. In these kinds of situations, it’s important to note that any blood in the bladder is a sign of big fibroids. These cases are rare, but there have been instances where the bladder gets damaged. A tear of those proportions can cause leakage of urine all over the body, which is potentially fatal.
Feeling of Fullness / Lack of Appetite
If you know your limits and know your stomach, you usually have an awareness of when you’re full. Sometimes you can start feeling full even when you’ve eaten nothing at all. Larger uterine fibroids can push up into your stomach, causing you to feel full sooner because of limited space for digestion.
In extreme cases, you may lose weight rapidly due to a lack of hunger or desire to eat. In these types of situations, you should consult your doctor.
Larger Waist Size
Most of us look at ourselves in the mirror on a daily basis, and any change is easy to spot. That’s why this is the second leading cause of uterine fibroid discovery. Visual changes can sometimes be evident right away.
If you don’t notice anything from a visual standpoint, clothes can be an excellent sign of uterine fibroids. If your favorite dress feels tighter or no longer fits, you may have a large uterine fibroid that’s causing abdominal expansion. Consult a specialist if you’re completely sure that you haven’t increased your food intake.
We define medical infertility as a lack of ability to conceive a child after one year of attempting. Now, this is true and valid only if no other infertility factor is present. Those factors are a presence of previous abortions, low male sperm count, and other medical reasons.
After you’ve completed all the other tests and are sure that everything is okay, uterine fibroids may be the culprit. You should tell your gynecologist that you suspect that you have fibroids that may be causing infertility.
A Pelvic Mass
A discovery during some other check-up is one of the ways to detect uterine fibroids. That’s the advantage of having medical awareness from an early age. Women who have frequent checkups and take care of their bodies have a higher possibility of discovering fibroids early. Early detection allows for less invasive intervention through lifestyle changes at your own pace.
Diarrhea or Sensitive Stomach
Even though it is uncommon, uterine fibroids can be a factor in causing diarrhea. Not a significant percentage of women experience it, but it depends on stomach sensitivity.
