Uterine Fibroids and Their Symptoms

By HERWriter

Others say it is rare that a uterine fibroid projecting into the uterus might either block an embryo from implanting or cause problems with pregnancy.

Most uterine fibroids do not need treatment as they cause little to no symptoms or problems. Those causing problems may be treated with surgery or non-surgical options.

A health care professional can help determine if changes in menstrual patterns, or fullness or pain in the lower abdomen, is the result of uterine fibroids.
