Major Symptoms Of Cervical Fibroids

Cervical fibroids are the muscular structures that are formed in the cervix. The cervix is the opening to the base of the uterus. Cervical fibroids are similar to uterine fibroids in terms of how they are formed but they are not as likely to cause trouble as the latter. Furthermore, cervical fibroids normally would not affect a woman’s fertility.

Fibroids in the cervix can cleared up just by following some simple safety measures. The symptoms of cervical fibroids may or may not trouble any person; their most disturbing feature is their mode of growth – cervical fibroids normally grow inward into the uterus.


Symptoms of cervical fibroids:

The cervix is the region at the base of the uterus, and it is the canal through which a baby passes during childbirth. The cervix is made of involuntary muscles and arteries. Fibroids of any type normally form when a woman gets pregnant or attains the age of reproduction. These fibroids can grow very large and they can be a problem during pregnancy and childbirth. This is why fibroids are to be treated at the earliest possible time. Cervical fibroids can be problematic as they are located along the birth canal and may block the passage. The shape of uterus at its base is altered because of these structures. These huge weights at the base – in cases when cervical fibroids grow too large –lengthen the cervix.

Changes in normal menstrual periods: 

One of the first symptoms a woman with cervical fibroids faces are heavy and prolonged menstrual periods. It can result in heavy blood loss and can also lead to a reduction in red blood cell count. Cervical fibroids can thus cause anemia.

Cramps and pain:

Cervical fibroids can also cause irritation and increase inflammation in this region. These all take place within the lower abdominal area. Severe pain and pressure in this region may be experienced, and in some cases, this unbearable pain may spread to the back. The menstrual cycles become difficult to handle due to the increased pain and abdominal cramps.

Frequent urination:

If the size of the cervical fibroid is huge, it can create pressure on the bladder, causing pain and discomfort. In addition, the pressure on the bladder increases the frequency and urgency of urination. This symptom is not exclusive to cervical fibroids; it may also be a symptom of sexually transmitted diseases or a urinary tract infection, so be sure of the cause so as not to take the wrong treatment. Get proper advice from a medical professional.


Cervical fibroids can also exert pressure on the rectum and this increases the chances of getting constipation. The increase in pressure towards the rectum makes it difficult to have normal bowel movements. The cervical fibroids thus disturb the excretory process of a normal fertile woman. Constipation can also make bloating, discomfort, and abdominal pains worse.

Severe pain during intercourse:

The cervix is inevitably affected during sex, and the presence of fibroids makes intercourse painful and uncomfortable. The penetration into the vagina exerts pressure on the cervix, and there may be times when bleeding could result. It could also irritate the tissues that are affected, resulting in pain.
