Could be anemia: Anemia is low hemoglobin and can cause a person to feel really worn out and beat. You should check with your ob/gyne doctor about your blood levels and persistent bleeding. Besides hysterectomy, there are other options available such as uterine ablation amd hormonal therapy that can help stanch the bleeding while preserving your uterus. Sounds like you need a visit to your ob/gyne soon !

Anemia?: Fibroids would have to be unusually large to cause shortness of breath. Anemia (low hemoglobin) is a much more likely cause of shortness of breath. You will need some tests to see exactly what the cause is. If you are shot of breath, you need to be seen quickly. Best wishes!
