wjat causes gas and bloating from fibroids and ovarian cysts?

See below: Gas and bloating should only occur with fibroids if they are very large and compressing the bowel. Similar to the experience you see when you are pregnant and the enlarged uterus causes those symptoms. They same would apply to ovarian cysts. They would need to be very large in order to cause that problem.

Any enlarged masses: In abdomen can cuase bloating and fullness simply from the mass effect and irritation of surrounding bowel.
