What Can Uterine Fibroids Lead To?

Although fibroids are not exactly life threatening, they can cause a few complications if not taken care of:

  • Anaemia: Anaemia is when haemoglobin concentration in the blood decreases and in this case, anaemia occurs due to heavy blood flow.
  • Retention of Urine: Large fibroids may put pressure on the urinary bladder to cause urine retention, i.e. inability to empty the bladder partially or completely.
  • Painful Defecation: Similarly, pressure on the rectum may cause painful passing of stools.
  • Difficulty in conceiving: It is possible that in some cases, fibroids may prevent pregnancy by preventing the implantation and growth of the embryo.
