Let’s Talk About the Common Symptoms of Fibroids

Hello, Jubie Tribe! It’s your favorite girl here to talk about something I love to discuss… our reproductive health! Specifically, let’s chat about fibroids and their pesky symptoms. We are all in this uterus game together, so lets get into it!

Symptoms of Fibroids

First things first, what are fibroids? Well, they are non-cancerous growths that develop in the uterus. Below are common symptoms. If you are experiencing these symptoms, please consult a doctor.

Heavy Bleeding

If you have a vagina, then you have likely bled through your clothes, on your sheets etc. – we’ve all been there! However, if your flow is so heavy that it’s impacting your lifestyle e.g. you find yourself cancelling plans for fear of a leak in public, then it could be a sign of something more at play. If you are going through a super tampon in less than an hour, then you have excessive bleeding and that’s not normal. You should bring this to the attention of your doctor as it may be a symptom of an underlying problem like fibroids.

Abdominal Pain and Cramping

Experiencing cramps is a common symptom of your menstrual period; however, severe cramping is not normal. Many of us have been raised to believe that debilitating pain is just a part of being a woman and we learn to fight through it. That is a narrative that has to change. If you’re experiencing severe abdominal pain and cramping, it is a sign that something is wrong and it could be fibroids.

Frequent Urination

Do you feel like you’re always running to the bathroom? Like, seriously. You just went five minutes ago, but now you’re back again? If this sounds familiar, it could be a sign of fibroids. These pesky growths can press against your bladder, making you feel like you have to pee all the time.


On the flip side of frequent urination, we have constipation. If you’re having trouble going number two, it could be a sign of fibroids. These growths can press against your rectum, making it difficult to pass stool.

Painful Intercourse

If you’re experiencing discomfort or pain during sex, it could be a sign of fibroids. These growths can press against your cervix or other pelvic organs, causing pain during penetration or deep thrusting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can fibroids go away on their own?

It’s possible, but not guaranteed. Some fibroids can shrink or disappear on their own, but others may continue to grow and cause symptoms.

Are fibroids cancerous?

Nope! Fibroids are almost always non-cancerous.

Can fibroids affect fertility?

Unfortunately, yes. Depending on the size and location of the fibroids, they can interfere with your ability to conceive.

How are fibroids diagnosed?

Your doctor will likely perform a pelvic exam and may order imaging tests, like an ultrasound or MRI, to confirm the presence of fibroids.

What are the treatment options for fibroids?

Treatment options include medication to manage symptoms, minimally invasive procedures to remove or shrink fibroids, and surgery in more severe cases. For an all-natural pain reliever we recommend our CBD+CBG vaginal suppositories for targeted relief.
