What are the symptoms of uterine fibroids?

Many women have no symptoms of fibroids. However, uterine fibroids can cause uncomfortable or sometimes painful symptoms, such as:

  • Heavy bleeding or painful periods
  • Anemia (when you don’t have enough red blood cells)
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Feeling “full” in the lower abdomen (belly)—this is sometimes called pelvic pressure
  • Frequent urination (caused by a fibroid pressing on the bladder)
  • Pain during sex
  • Lower back pain
  • Reproductive problems, such as infertility, multiple miscarriages, and early onset of labor during pregnancy
  • Obstetrical problems, such as increased likelihood of cesarean section
