Is there a link between tampons and uterine fibroids?

In brief: No

Howver, if the fibroids are bleeding heavily then more tampons will be used.

In brief: No! Not at all.

First, uterine fibroids are exceedingly comm with smaller ones having no side effects in most women.
Obviously some, particularly larger ones can cause a host of problems. But no study links tampon usage with fibroids, (i knew the answer but double-checked on pubmed for sure!).
