Painful Sex and Fibroids

For some women, fibroids can cause discomfort during sexual intercourse. Find out why this may be the case how you can take steps to treat the issue.

I have pain during sex. Can this be caused by my fibroids?

Pain during sexual intercourse may be a symptom of fibroids. When fibroids grow in the vicinity of the cervix at the end of the vaginal tract, they can make sex highly uncomfortable for women.

However, not all fibroids grow in this area. There are three other types of tumors besides cervical fibroids. Submucousal fibroids develop on the inner surface of the uterus just underneath the uterine lining. Subserousal fibroids grow on the outer layer of the uterus wall. Fibroids that can sometimes grow on stalks on the outer wall or into the cavity of the uterus are called pedunculated. Finally the most common type of fibroid, intramural, grows directly in the wall of the uterus.

Cervical fibroids, though, can either press on the cervix or actually hang through the cervical opening, often making it quite difficult for women to enjoy sex.  If you think that you are experiencing these symptoms due to the presence of fibroids, visit your physician so that he or she can thoroughly examine your situation and uncover whether or not your symptoms are a direct result of your fibroids.
