Heavy Bleeding May Be A Sign Of Uterine Fibroids

Are you experiencing heavy bleeding with symptoms of anemia in Alpharetta, GA? This can be a potential sign that you’re at risk of uterine fibroids. Uterine Fibroids can cause women to experience abnormal menstrual bleeding, produce severe anemia, and complications during pregnancy.

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous tumors that grow on the walls of the uterus. They can range in size from small (a seed) and grow tremendously large in very unique cases to the size of a grapefruit.

Women are most likely to experience these growths throughout their childbearing years and into their 40s and 50s. According to womenshealth.gov women that are likely to have an increased risk of fibroids are African American women, women with family history of fibroids, and women who are overweight and/or eat red meat.

Although most women who carry fibroids don’t have symptoms, there are a few indicators that could help with early treatment intervention.

Pay attention to:
