In brief: Yes

Fibroids grow all the time, in part due to female hormones.
They stop growing from menopause or stopping your hormones with a Lupron (leuprolide) shot. Some fibroids grow slowly; fibroids in some women grow quickly.

Not all fibroids need to be treated. Check with your gynecologist and discuss your symptoms.

Fibroids often grow in size, but it is the presence of symptoms that warrants any treatment (unless it is for fibroid-related infertility).

In brief: Yes

As long as you are making estrogen then your fibroids can grow.
