Fibroids can develop at various locations throughout the uterus at sizes ranging from undetectable growths to massive tumors that distort the shape of the uterus and obstruct nearby organ systems. Fibroids receive the majority of their blood supply directly from the uterine arteries and have a tendency to grow over time if left untreated.
Heavy Menstrual Bleeding
Heavy bleeding is the most common symptom of fibroids. Bleeding abnormalities include:
- Heavy menstrual bleeding or prolonged duration of menstrual bleeding (longer than 6 days)
- Bleeding between periods
- Frequent periods, more often than every 24 days
- Irregular or unpredictable periods
Fibroids can cause a variety of pain patterns that depend on the size and location of the fibroids:
- Acute or chronic pelvic pain
- Excessively painful periods, pain after period ends, or pain occurring mid-cycle
- Pain during intercourse or when using the bathroom
- Backache / leg pain
Growing fibroids can press on the nearby gastrointestinal and urinary organ systems, causing:
- Pressure sensations on the bladder or inside your abdomen
- Frequent urination, difficulty urinating, or urinary incontinence
- Constipation or tenesmus (persistent feeling of having to use the bathroom)
- Bloating or weight gain, especially in the pelvic region
Fibroid Risk Factors
- Older Age | women in their 40’s and 50’s are much more likely to have fibroids than younger women
- African American | black women are at 2 to 3 times higher risk of developing fibroids than white, hispanic, or asian women
- Obesity, High Blood Pressure, and Diabetes | these conditions have been associated with higher fibroid risk
- Hormone Levels | estrogen and progesterone, hormones produced by the ovaries, are thought to contribute to fibroid growth
- Family History | fibroids may run in your family

Fibroid Screening in Dallas, TX
Uterine fibroid embolization is available at IVC in Dallas, TX.
Advantages of Uterine Fibroid Embolization
UFE Procedure: a small tube called a catheter is guided through the blood vessels to reach the fibroids. Microbeads are injected through the catheter into the fibroid, blocking the fibroid’s blood supply.
The UFE procedure takes less than an hour and involves no major incisions
Rapid Recovery Time
UFE has the least downtime of any fibroid procedure.
UFE keeps the uterus healthy and intact, so pregnancy is still possible afterwards.
