  • i guess it depends on where your fibroids are. Honestly i didnt know i had any untill i got pregnant and they found one on my uterus. they said it had probably been there for years i never had any symptoms what so ever and even being pregnant i dont notice anything different. i was told they arnt that big of a issue so long as they arnt huge and taking up lots of space but in that case they would just remove it.

  • It depends on the type of fibroid, the amount of fibroids, the location and the size of the fibroids.  In other words, every women is different. 


    I had one low in my uterus near my cervix and it caused excessive bleeding for me.
