Quiz Answer: Fibroids

Your symptoms suggest that you might have a fibroid (or ovarian cyst).

Before we go any further, please note that there is no way you can diagnose a fibroid or cyst based on a questionnaire. You 100% have to go to your doctor and have a transvaginal ultrasound in order to determine if you actually have either.

Considering that up to 70% of White women and 80% of Black women will have a fibroid by age 50, it’s important to understand the symptoms to look out for, so that you know to ask your doctor about it.

Besides heavy bleeding during your period (especially if it seemed to come out of nowhere), painful ovulation, increased need to pee, a feeling of “heaviness” in your lower abdomen, back pain, and heavier cramping during your period are all common signs of fibroids.

The sooner that you realize you have a fibroid (or several), the better. There’s a lot of functional supports you can use in order to keep that fibroid(s) from growing, and in some situations, possible help it to shrink.

Because as fibroids grow larger, they will cause more problems. At a certain point, it is often inevitable that they will need to be surgically removed if they are too large.
