Elizabeth A Stewart, MD. Uterine fibroids (leiomyomas): Treatment overview. Post TW, ed. UpToDate. Waltham, MA: UpToDate Inc.
Uterine fibroids are very common in reproductive-age women. For some, they are entirely asymptomatic. Moreover, since fibroids can grow, remain stable, and/or potentially regress (during hypoestrogenic states such as menopause) [1,2], patients without symptoms should be educated about the presence of fibroids and potential associated symptoms. However, many patients will present with symptoms including abnormal uterine bleeding, pressure or bulk symptoms, fertility issues, and/or pain that warrant treatment. These patients have a variety of therapeutic options available to address their symptoms.
