Uterine fibroids, also known as uterine leiomyomas are benign smooth muscle tumors found in or around the uterus.  Fibroids are common in women of childbearing age and many women will have no symptoms. Fibroids usually have a minimal effect on the pregnancy, but they can sometimes be associated with fertility concerns and some pregnancy concerns.  While many women have no symptoms and may never even know they have a fibroid, pain is usually the most commonly reported symptoms. There is a slightly increased risk of obstetric complications, such as miscarriage, preterm labor and delivery, fetal malpresentation, and placental abruption which are all discussed in this episode of True Birth.
