The fibroma can also give bleeding, that is to say bleeding between the rules. It is the fibroids that develop inside the uterine cavity that are responsible for these signs. When these bleeds are too important, the woman can suffer from anemia, be tired, develop infections more easily ...
> A frequent urge to urinate (pollakiuria), urinary incontinence, constipation ... can reveal the presence of a fibroid that compresses the neighboring organs: bladder, colon and rectum essentially. It will be rather fibroids with external development (outside the uterus).
