You can have fibroids for years before they get large and cause menstration problems. Took mine till age 41, though I had abnormal abdominal bloating prior to that for about 5 years that was unexplainable to me. If you don't have menstration problems yet, it's hard to tell. My periods changed drastically 8 months ago: prolonged heavy periods, clotting, pressure on bladder, frequent urination, constipation, spotting between periods, heavy cramping, double monthly periods, back cramping, sore after sex.

Thanks for the positive response, having uterus removed June 13th, due to heavy menstration that returned after fibroids were removed 6 months ago.

I had uterine fibroids removed, and same symptoms came back 6 months later, scheduled for uterus "only" removal this June 13th. My uterus is pressing on my bladder and sitting on my bowels, and in reverse position. Glad to hear that you feel better, hoping I will too. Sex has only been once a month between me and my husband for past year due to these problems: prolonged periods, cramping, spotting, bloating, sore after sex.

Yes, fibroids cause back pain, also if your uterus is tipped in the opposite direction as mine is against my spine - causes back cramping during menstration.

Very possible. My own fibroids were diagnosed before the back pain started. When the back pain did start, daytime pain relief was controlled with 800mg ibuprofin prescribed by my obgyn & nightime relief was controlled by sleeping with a pillow between my legs. Since having my hyst. in Sept., I've been totally pain free. p.s.: I found a great friend here on the forum who said she went thru almost a whole year with tremendous back pain to find that it WAS fibroids that caused it.

The reason I went to the doctor outside of my annual physical was the lower back pain I was having. This went on for awhile, I was thinking it was poor fitting shoes, then I thought it was my posture, etc. Then I starting having right hip pain in about the same area - thus called my physican to schedule an appointment before my yearly appointment came up. Once he felt inside he said that fibroids were causing my pain in my side and lower back. He said normally I should also experience pain during intercourse with those fibroids, however I wasn't. I did have a hysterectomy - took everything but one ovary. The uterus was full of fibroids, a fibroid was also attached to my bladder, (which is why 2 times prior to the surgery I didn't make it to the bathroom in time - but I didn't put the two together) and the left ovary had a cyst. I'm 42- married, no children and don't want any kids - so this surgery was a good thing for me!!!!!

Can someone out there tell me if it is common for Uterine Fribroids to cause extreme pain in the lower back? This pain has been going on for 10 weeks now. Are my fribroids getting worse, bigger? Are there any other options other than hysterectomy?
