In brief: Varies

About half of women with fibroids have no symptoms.
The most common symptoms form fibroids is heavy menstrual bleeding - flow heavier and/or longer and often with clots. If the fibroids enlarge the uterus it can push on other structures and cause urinary frequency, discomfort with sex, constipation, and/or back pain. In some women fibroids can interfere with fertility.

In brief: Bleeding and pain

There are many possible symptoms arising from the fibrods.
The most common ones are abnormal bleeding and pelvic pain or pressure. They depend on both the location and size. Up to 40% of women have fibroid tumors but most of them do not know they have them because they do not have any symptoms. Usually, there is no need for treatment unless you have significant symptoms.
