In brief: Yes

Most fibroids do not cause any symptoms.
However, as they grow they can be responsible for increased bleeding and pain. Pain may be only during menses or all the time or only with activities such as sex.

Fibroids can also cause pain when they shrink. If you are having pelvic pain, see your gynecologist. It may be a urinary tract infection. You may need an ultrasound to evaluate your pelvic organs.
