Common signs and symptoms of uterine fibroids include: backache, heavy period flow, constipations, leg pain, frequent urination, urinary tract infections, pelvic pressure or a vague discomfort felt as heaviness in the lower abdomen. The main cause of uterine fibroids is unknown, but it is well documented that the estrogen hormone promotes the growth of abnormal muscle cells that end up turning into benign tumor cells called uterine fibroids.
You can know whether you have uterine fibroids just by identifying symptoms such as: pain during intercourse, abdominal bloating, chronic pelvic pain and severe cramping. Moreover, uterine fibroids can also cause fatigue or make you feel dizzy, tired and nauseous.
Natural remedies for uterine fibroids include green tea which is rich in a bioflavonoid called EGCG. It reduces inflammation and the number of fibroids. It also removes toxins from the body.
The most common uterine fibroids treatment is myomectomy which is an operation performed to remove fibroids and still preserve the uterus. It is very effective, but fibroids can still regrow after treatment. Moreover, after fibroid treatment, there is a fibroid tissue discharge that can last for days. The color of fibroid discharge is brown, red or pinkish.
