Uterine fibroids are the benign tumors; it is most common    problem of many women. These tumors often need no treatment  because they are not a major health problem and the presence of  fibroids does not pose a risk of cancer.

Fibroids are composed primarily of muscle cells that grow as a single lump or cluster of lumps within the uterine wall. Fibroids range in size from less than one inch in diameter to the size of a grapefruit. Uterine fibroids are usually round or semi-round in shape.


Uterine fibroids are often described based upon their location within the uterus.


These grow inside the uterine cavity beneath the lining of the uterus.  These fibroids can cause heavy bleeding, pain and infertility


Most common type of fibroid grows in between the muscles of the uterine wall. These fibroids usually cause pressure-type symptoms and less often, heavy menstruation.


These fibroids grow outside surface of the uterus or may be attached to the outside surface by a pedicle. Subserosal fibroids can push on other organs, such as the bladder, bowel or intestine, causing abdominal bloating, pressure, cramps, frequent urination, backache or constipation.

Risk factors

Exact cause of these tumors is not known, some factors that can play a role in the development of fibroids are –

– Family history

– Not having children

– Early onset of menstruation

– Late age for menopause

– Abnormalities in the vascular (blood vessel) system

– Tissue response to injury

– Being overweight

– Alcohol, smoking

– Uterine infections

– Increased blood pressure (hypertension).

– Estrogen tends to stimulate the growth of fibroids in many cases. During the first trimester of pregnancy, up to 30% of fibroids will enlarge and then shrink after the birth. In general, fibroids tend to shrink after menopause, but postmenopausal hormone therapy may cause symptoms to persist.


Fibroids can cause a number of symptoms depending on their size, location within the uterus, and how close they are to adjacent pelvic organs

– Excessive or painful bleeding during menstruation

– Bleeding between periods

– A feeling of fullness in the lower abdomen

– Frequent urination resulting from a fibroid that compresses the bladder

– Pain during sexual intercourse

– Low back pain

– Constipation

– Chronic vaginal discharge

– Severe menstrual cramps

– Infertility

– Tiredness due to the blood loss



– Eat whole grains such as brown rice, millet, oats, buckwheat, and rye.  They are all good sources of B vitamins, and they’re high in fibre.  Your liver needs both to function well and the extra fibre ensure that excess estrogens are excreted through the bowel.  This is why women, who eat a high fibre, low fat diet, with plenty of fruits and vegetables, have lower levels of estrogen in their blood, and are seen to decrease their risk of developing uterine fibroids.

– Avoid alcohol and caffeine, which suppress liver function and in turn interferes with the liver’s metabolism of estrogen.


– Get moving.  Start a walking program, join a gym, get into biking or swimming or tennis, or just put on some amazing music and dance until your heart sings.
