Heavy period and I have the symptoms each month. Should they test for fibroids?

In brief: Good question

As i tell my patients, "if you are having a problem with your periods, let's investigate.
" whether you do don't have fibroids isn't my main concern. Rather i would want to investigate several issues and then present you with several options. Fibroids certainly could be the issue.

In brief: Yes

Your symptoms can be caused be fibroids.
A physical exam and ultrasound would be the start of a good workup.
