Women who weigh over 70 kg are at a higher risk of having fibroids; this is usually due to the fact that they have higher levels of the oestrogen hormone. Fibroids in women of African descent tend to also grow larger than in other women. Because of this, the symptoms vary from mild to life altering. Women with this condition have heavy periods or cycles, pass their urine very regularly, and have abdominal swelling. Anaemia, poor circulation, constipation, muscle cramps and excessive gassiness. Swollen fibroids can affect the function of other organs; usually the bladder or the bowel. Needless to say it is very painful.
