In brief: Signs and symptoms

Clinical manifestation can include- heavy menses, dysmenorrhea, pressure/discomfort on pelvic are- which depends on the bulk of the fibroids, difficulty to get pregnant and miscarriages.
Due to heavy menses, people can have iron deficiency anemia that can be presented with weakness, fatigue/dizziness etc.

In brief: Heavy periods are 1

Fibroids cause no symptoms at all in about half of those who have them. The most common fibroid symptom is heavier than normal menstrual flow.
The fibroids can also enlarge the uterus and cause pressure symptoms, usually urinary frequency.
