Do fibroids have a heartbeat?
Uterine fibroids are benign growths in the womb that can continue to increase in size to the extent of becoming symptomatic and preventing a woman to become become pregnant.
Many women who have fibroids don’t have any symptoms, that is, they are asymptomatic. In those that do, symptoms can be influenced by the location, size and number of fibroids.
In women who have symptoms, the most common signs and symptoms of uterine fibroids include:
Heavy menstrual bleeding
Menstrual periods lasting more than a week
Pelvic pressure or pain
Difficulty emptying the bladder
Backache or leg pains
Features of anemia like easy fatigue, fast heart beat, effort intolerance, leg swelling
Rarely, a fibroid can cause acute pain when it outgrows its blood supply, and begins to die….this is known as red degeneration of fibroids.
Now to answer your question….fibroids do not contain heart and hence do not have heart beat…. your heart is in your you chest and that is where your heart beats not from your uterine fibroids.
Yes, it is true that women with fibroids feel some kind of movement in their tummy that feels like a pregnancy or foetus…but this should not be mistaken for a heartbeat.
