Let’s discuss the tie between frequent urination and fibroids.
What is frequent urination?
Frequent urination is defined as the need to urinate more than eight times per day.
It can be a symptom of various health conditions, illnesses, and diseases. It can also be a sign of too much fluid intake on any given day.
When looking at women’s health, frequent urination is most often a symptom of uterine fibroids.
How do fibroids cause frequent urination?
For many women, the harsh reality of living with fibroids is also living with frequent urination. Restroom trips become part of your daily life pretty quickly when you’re diagnosed with fibroids.
As fibroids grow, they can add pressure to the uterus and neighboring organs, including the bladder.
If you have numerous fibroids or larger ones, they expand the overall size of the uterus as they grow and multiply. The increased uterus size also adds pressure to the bladder, increasing the urge to use the bathroom more often as the bladder mistakes the pressure for fullness.
All types of fibroids can cause frequent urination, but the most common type is usually subserosal, as they are found outside the uterus and protrude outward.
How to Treat Fibroids and Stop Frequent Urination
Frequent urination is a symptom of an underlying health condition, such as fibroids. A medical team must diagnose the underlying cause to effectively treat this symptom when treating frequent urination.
In the case of uterine fibroids, the best treatment option to end frequent urination is uterine fibroid removal.
Removing fibroids can be done in several ways, including uterine fibroid embolization. During your consultation, we’ll discuss the best way to remove fibroids based on your diagnoses.
