Do you have menstrual concerns related to uterine fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are made up of muscle and other tissues that grow in the uterus. They may develop in the uterine wall, inside the lining of the uterus, or outside of the uterus. Many women with fibroids do not experience any symptoms and are unaware that they have fibroids. However, about one in four women may experience some symptoms such as heavy bleeding, pain, and urinary problems that may require treatment.
What causes them?
Influential factors can include genetics, hormonal dysregulation, the environment, or a combination of all of these factors however the actual cause of fibroids still remains unknown.
