In brief: Pain and/or Bleeding

Depending on the size and location, fibroids can cause heavy or painful periods, pelvic pain or pressure/bloating, changes in urination or bowel movements, miscarriages or infertility.
Fibroids are very common and many women have small fibroids that do not cause any symptoms at all.
