If you are experiencing changes in menstrual patterns, intense cramps, constipation, and trouble urinating are all possible symptoms of fibroids. Fibroids are common growths in the uterus that are usually benign. They can vary greatly in size, from pea-sized to five or six pounds. They are most often found in women between the ages of 30 and 40, but can develop in women of all ages. Not all fibroids cause these symptoms and those that do not should be left alone and will eventually go away.
