Uterine Fibroids and Polyps

Fibroids and polyps are usually non-cancerous growths that form in or on the uterine wall. They are quite common, with nearly 80% of women developing one or more growths within their lifetime.1 The majority of growths will go unnoticed because they do not show signs or symptoms.  However, some become symptomatic and may lead to:

  • Excessive uterine bleeding
  • Painful and prolonged menstrual periods
  • Vaginal bleeding after menopause
  • Difficulty with urination and constipation
  • Pressure in the pelvic area
  • Fullness or pressure in the belly
  • Lower back and leg pain
  • Pain during sex
  • Difficulty in getting pregnant

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, consult with your doctor.
