UTERINE FIBROIDS! WHY YOU SHOULD STAY INFORMED

FACTS YOU CAN’T IGNORE ABOUT FIBROID. . .
Research shows that as many as 70% to 80% of all women will have fibroids before age 50, and these women are mostly blacks or African-Americans. Uterine fibroids start to develop after puberty, and usually from age 30. Fibroid is prevalent among the women of black race. No one seem to know the cause of fibroid but their growth seems to depend on estrogen, the higher the estrogen level the higher the risk of fibroid growth this implies that ALL WOMEN OF PRODUCTIVE AGE (this is when estrogen level gets very high) must take a preventive approach against fibroid, or be at the risk of developing fibroids. Studies have found that women who start their periods at a younger age are more likely to develop fibroids. 


SYMPTOMS OF FIBROIDS: these can be mild or severe

·        Frequent urination
·        Constipation and/or rectal pain
·        Lower back and/or abdominal pain
·        Large fibroid tissue can distend the stomach, making the woman look pregnant
Fibroids can cause changes in a woman’s period
·        Mild to severe cramp and pain
·        Heavier bleeding, sometimes with blood clots
·        Longer or more frequent menstruation
·        Spotting or bleeding between periods

There are factors that can increase a woman's risk of developing fibroids.
Age. Fibroids become more common as women age, especially during the 30s and 40s through menopause. After menopause, fibroids usually shrink.
·                     Family history. Having a family member with fibroids increases your risk. If a woman's mother had fibroids, her risk of having them is about three times higher than average.
·                     Ethnic origin. African-American women are more likely to develop fibroids than white women.
·                     Obesity. Women who are overweight are at higher risk for fibroids. For very heavy women, the risk is two to three times greater than average.
·                     Eating habits. Eating a lot of red meat (e.g., beef) and ham is linked with a higher risk of fibroids. Eating plenty of green vegetables seems to protect women from developing fibroids
