Heavy periods, pelvic pain and uterine fibroids
It is normal for women to experience a heavy menstrual period or cramps from time to time. What is not normal is a heavy period that impacts how you live your daily life or pelvic pain that is constant or unbearable. One possible cause of these symptoms is common, non-cancerous growths on the uterine wall called uterine fibroids.
Women who experience pelvic pain or heavy menstrual bleeding may have a common, non-cancerous growth on the uterine wall called a uterine fibroid. Symptoms of uterine fibroids can be effectively treated with uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), a minimally-invasive alternative to hysterectomy.
