Understanding Uterine Fibroids

At Columbus Women’s Care, we encourage women to visit their gynecologist on a regular basis for examinations and cancer screenings. During this time, a doctor may suspect or find uterine fibroids. These are benign growths that can develop on the walls of the uterus in clusters or individually. They may vary in size and frequency. For some women, uterine fibroids do not cause any problems, while others may experience:

  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Pain or pressure in the lower back or abdomen
  • Longer periods than normal
  • Abdominal distension/bloating
  • Anemia
  • Infertility
  • Heavy bleeding and clotting during periods
  • Urinary problems
  • Vaginal bleeding between periods

Uterine fibroids can be disruptive to a woman’s daily activities and quality of life, which is when women will want to get a proper diagnosis and discuss treatment/removal of their fibroids with a medical professional. First, a diagnosis is made during an evaluation. The doctor will listen to a woman’s description of symptoms and then feel for firm masses during a pelvic examination. Ultrasounds and MRIs can also help in spotting uterine fibroids. Once found, patients can speak with their doctor at Columbus Women’s Care about treatment.

Treatment of uterine fibroids may include:

  • UFE (Uterine fibroid embolization)
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Myomectomy
  • Hysterectomy
  • Medication

The severity of a patient’s symptoms will often dictate the course of action and recommended treatment. Women who are not experiencing any symptoms may opt to leave the uterine fibroids alone, but be closely aware of any changes or development of symptoms that may indicate the need to have them removed. During annual examinations, the doctor at Columbus Women’s Care may evaluate the fibroids to see if they have grown, shrunk, or disappeared with time. Women who are trying to conceive and are experiencing infertility or difficulty conceiving due to their uterine fibroids may benefit from having them removed to allow them to start or expand their family.
