Under the Influence of Fibroids

Studies have shown that having uterine fibroids can increase anxiety and depression. As a result of the psychological impact of having fibroids, problems in relationships can occur.

Furthermore, these mental health effects can reduce our ability to engage in and further develop our hobbies and interests.

Why is this?

For starters, let’s say you love the outdoors and love camping. Well, with the fibroid symptom of heavy menstrual bleeding and bleeding between periods, enjoying the great outdoors isn’t quite so easy.

This also applies to a beach day, a road trip, or any other activity that provides distance from your bed and your bathroom.

Fibroids can also be uncomfortable, and this discomfort can impact how feel about our bodies. Which is also known as our body image. You can learn more about body image and fibroids by reading this previous article.

Though others might not notice any difference in our physical appearance, and in fact, there might not be a difference at all, our perception and experience could be quite different.

Due to the pain and pressure of fibroids, as well as the fibroid symptoms of water retention, constipation, and bloating, our abdomen and lower parts of our body feel inflated and larger than they are.

Fibroids can also affect our physical appearance in other ways. One of which is our posture.

In our next article, we will explore the effect that fibroids can have on our posture and the message that it sends to ourselves and others.

In the meantime, there is no reason to let fibroids keep you from feeling good about yourself and enjoying your life when help is available.
