Probably okay: Do you mean you were recently diagnosed with fibroids? As they grow, fibroids need a blood supply so maybe you are feeling that. It's probably nothing to be concerned about. Once you reach menopause (average age 51) then your fibroids should shrink. If your fibroids start to cause problems (irregular bleeding, anemia, pelvic pain, pain with intercourse) then they might need to be treated prior
