I am 45 yrs old and I have small fibroids in my uterus and my doctor did a blood test to see if I can still conceive which I can. But, the problem is for the first time my period was just irregular on May 28, until June 4th I had a period. Then I had very light spotting on the 12th then on the 15 I had a very heavy period then it stopped on the 18th which was the day I had sex. The very next day I had light spotting , until the 21st. I am suppose to be showing signs of me coming on my period and I am not showing but, I am experiencing some breast tenderness which started 2 weeks after I had sex. So Please tell me what are my chances of being pregnant?

Thank you

One of the many symptoms of fibroids is bleeding between periods-- so this is what you may be experiencing. If you are unsure whether or not you may be pregnant, please take a pregnancy test.

Other symptoms of fibroids include:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Feeling of pelvic pressure
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Clots in menstrual flow
  • Long periods
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Increased cramping during periods
  • Pain during sex
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Constipation
  • Bloating
  • Enlarged uterus, giving the appearance of pregnancy
  • Low back or leg pain
  • Infertility by blocking the fallopian tubes
  • Miscarriage


Iron-deficiency anemia may develop if bleeding is heavy.

Hope this helps and thanks for posting!
