What are the most common symptoms of uterine fibroids?
One of the most common symptoms of fibroids is a feeling of fullness or pressure in your pelvis, which may become worse during your menstrual cycle. As fibroids get bigger, they occupy more space in the uterus and can cause pressure on adjacent parts of the body. For example, because the bladder is right next to the uterus, fibroids can cause urinary difficulty including an increase in frequency and urgency. In addition, fibroids can cause heavier than normal bleeding during the cycle or bleeding in-between cycles which can lead to anemia.
