Fibroids are growths in the uterus (womb) they are non-cancerous; it is thought up to 1 in 4 women suffer with them. Usually they cause no symptoms but in some women they can cause heavy periods, abdominal swelling, bladder weakness and incontinence.

What are the different types of fibroids?

  • Intramural fibroids grow within the muscle tissue of the uterus (womb); this is the most common type.
  • Subserous fibroids grow externally on the wall of the uterus (womb).
  • Submucous fibroids grow from the inner wall of the uterus (womb).
  • Pedunculated fibroids grow from the outside wall of the uterus (womb) attached by a narrow stalk.


Fibroids can cause urinary incontinenceOne symptom commonly experienced by women with uterine fibroids is urinary incontinence and frequency. As well as pelvic pain and pressure, uterine fibroids can also put immense pressure on the bladder, which increases the risk of urinary incontinence, or bladder leaks, as well as the instance of frequent urination.

Uterine fibroid tumour growth can also increase pressure to the bowel resulting in uncomfortable bloating and constipation.
