Are you experiencing heavy bleeding between or during your periods, pain in the pelvis or lower back? Symptoms such as this, or others like feeling pressure or fullness in the lower abdomen, may indicate that you are suffering from a disorder called fibroids. This condition requires the immediate attention of a specialised fibroid clinic, where a skilled team of experts can offer you the best treatments available for treating fibroids.
What Are Fibroids?
Fibroids are abnormal growths that develop within or on the uterus, leading to immense pain or a heavy menstrual cycle. In most cases, these tumours are benign, but at some point in time, they can disrupt your menstrual cycle and cause fertility issues, and eventually need to be removed. Although there is no precise reason as to why this disorder occurs, some of the contributing factors include hormonal imbalance, family history, and pregnancy. An imbalance of the oestrogen and progesterone hormones, cause the uterine lining to regenerate, and may overstimulate the growth of fibroids in each menstrual cycle. Another contributing factor to this disorder is family history.
If the disorder runs in your maternal line’s case history, there is a high chance of you developing this disorder. Pregnancy contributes to the increase in the production of oestrogen and progesterone hormones, thus contributing to the development and abnormal growth of fibroids. The medical staff and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment at our fibroid centre at Apollo Hospitals Navi Mumbai will help you with the right diagnosis as well as the ideal treatment for the same.
To understand if you are suffering from fibroids, you will first need to recognise its indicative signs. Symptoms of this disorder included heavy bleeding between or during periods, excessive blood clots, pain in the pelvis or lower back and increased menstrual cramping. You may also experience an increase in urination, pain during intercourse or even a swelling or enlargement of the abdomen.
