Feel like you are gaining weight? Fibroids might be the problem. Click inside to see how the two might intertwine.

Ever since I found out I have fibroids, I feel like I have gained weight. Do my fibroids cause me to gain weight?

Fibroids can range from the size of a walnut to the size of a cantaloupe or even larger. Doctors measure the size of the fibroid in relationship to the size of the uterus during pregnancy.For example, a large fibroid tumor might cause the uterus to become the size of a six or seven month pregnancy. Fibroids can exist as a single large tumor or as a cluster of small ones.

Symptoms of fibroids can range in severity. Some women experience no symptoms while others experience uncomfortable and even painful symptoms. Women sometimes underestimate the impact of their symptoms because they have gotten used to the excessive bleeding, pain and the pressure that the fibroids can cause. When there are symptoms, they vary depending on the location and size of the fibroid tumors.

Common symptoms of fibroids include:

  • An enlarged abdomen, which may be mistaken for weight gain or pregnancy
  • Anemia from heavy menstrual bleeding, which lowers the red blood cell count. This causes a woman to feel constantly tired.
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding (sometimes with clots) and long monthly periods
  • Pain during sex
  • Pain in the back of the legs

      • When I had my 3rd and 4th cesection the doctors have seen fibroids on my uterus. Its been a year in a half since I had my daughter. At the beginning of getting back in track with my menstrual cycles they were fine until the last two month were I have been getting 2 menstrual periods in one month. I havent been able to loose the weight I infact gained the weight i was in my last pregnancy. I wonder if the fibroids have enlarged or if my hormone imbalance have caused weight gain?
        Any additional info will help me .
