In some cases, the tumors could cause infertility or pregnancy loss.

Unfortunately, many women write these symptoms off as normal period issues.

Depending on the size of your fibroids and how much they're bothering you, your doctor may recommend that you go on a low-dose birth control pill or hormonal IUD to help control your bleeding. "They can degenerate and bleed, and usually shrink after the menopause".
