Warning Signs of Uterine Fibroids

Growths in a woman’s uterus, called uterine fibroids, usually aren’t cancerous; however, these growths can trigger significant pain and discomfort. Experts from the United States Department of Health and Human Services note that typical uterine fibroid symptoms include: heavy, painful menstrual periods; a sensation of fullness in the lower abdomen or pelvis; abdominal swelling; frequent urination; painful sex; low back pain; and reproductive problems.
