In brief: Yes it can

Assuming that the uterine fibroids are not distorting the uterine cavity too much, and the iud can be placed properly within the uterus, then it is a great option for women trying to get control of their bleeding.
At age 46, you need full evaluation with ultrasound and endometrial biopsy before placement.
