Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that can develop in the uterus during a woman’s childbearing years, but are most commonly found in women between the ages of 30 and 40. Many women will experience uterine fibroids at some point during their lifetime, but they may go undetected because they often don’t present with any symptoms. Gynecologists may suspect the presence of uterine fibroids during routine pelvic exams; if they feel irregularities in the shape of your uterus, they may order blood panels (typically something called a Complete Blood Count) and an ultrasound to further investigate.
For women that do present with symptoms, these include heavy menstrual bleeding, periods lasting longer than a week, pelvic pressure or pain, or difficulty emptying the bladder.
