How Do Uterine Fibroids Feel?
Uterine fibroids are growths in your uterus that are made out of fibrous tissue that’s rich with blood vessels. They normally form during your child-bearing years. They’re common among women, and while they aren’t cancerous, they can cause major disruptions to your daily life with a whole host of symptoms. Some women don’t have any symptoms at all, while others feel so bad that they seek fibroids treatment for relief.

What Causes Fibroids Conditions?
Little is known for sure about what causes fibroids to develop. They’re associated with estrogen stimulation. You may be at a higher risk of developing fibroids conditions if you have certain risk factors, such as:
- Having mother or sisters with a history of fibroids
- Having a vitamin D deficiency
- Being an African American woman
- Starting your period in your early teens
- Being at the high end of your fertile years
Unless fibroids are causing you significant discomfort or disrupting your daily life, you may not need any treatment. But if you’re dealing with the symptoms and received a diagnosis of fibroids, you have a number of treatment options. Contact the Downtown Vein & Vascular Center for a thorough exam that may reveal fibroids conditions.
