Usually fibroids will cause your cycle to be heavier, longer or more frequent. It depends on what is considered large. I would rule out other causes before assuming it is the fibroid. ...Read more

Hmm.: Your uterus won't 'burst' or rupture if you get pregnant. That is a risk is you have had certain types of surgery on your uterus (c-section, or myomectomy) and become pregnant. But if you have never had surgery on your uterus it would be extremely rare for it to 'rupture'.

Yes: Having uterine fibroids is independent of your period. Fibroids are benign tumors that involve the uterus. While most pre-menopausal women with fibroids have no symptoms, it is very rare for post-menopausal women to have any symptoms (and of those they are usually recently post-menopausal and complain of increased urinary frequency). ...Read more
