Do you know why Fibroids Cause Heavy Bleeding ?

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the muscle tissue of the uterus. They can range in number and size from a single growth to multiple growths, and from very small to large. As many as 70% to 80% of all women will have fibroids by age 50. The medical term for fibroids is leiomyoma or myoma.
FibroidsReason 1

Fibroids cause excessive bleeding because the tumour is quite close to the uterine lining. When fibroids tend to develop inside the womb then the mechanism that controls the menstrual flow may not work appropriately. If there is the pressure of the fibroids meddling with the blood flow it can cause heavy period or spotting between regular menses.

Reason 2

Fibroids growing into the uterine cavity would be the reason for the bleeding as it impedes with normal actions of the body. Usually the mechanisms of blood coagulation (blood clotting) merging with muscular uterine contractions do have the power to stop normal menstrual bleeding. But there are fibroids they would certainly try to disrupt the smooth muscles of the uterus from contracting wholly. And this is the reason why fibroids cause bleeding.

Reason 3

Fibroids are solid tumor that grow and tries to stimulate blood vessels to expand so as to bring more blood to the uterus. Due to this condition, the uterus starts to receive more blood than usual. This is certainly the main cause for heavy bleeding that some women get to experience. Sometimes excessive bleeding may also occur when fibroids cause major congestion of blood in the uterus by not letting the normal blood to flow back to the heart.

If you are experiencing a heavy or unusual bleeding,  Fibroid can be the reason behind it. Ignoring it may worsen the situation. Have a quick talk with Dr.Sarah Hussain to know about the quick solutions available to  get rid of your problems.
