I Am A Fibroids Warrior

Adding to the equation and making sure they have their invitation to the pain party are fibroids. Fibroids are non-cancerous pelvic tumors. They can cause heavy bleeding, extremely long periods, pain, constipation, difficulty emptying the bladder, body pains. 


In my case I have experienced every single one of those symptoms. It is rather difficult to know which illness causes which symptoms when you have so many invited to the pain party. I also think that fibroids make your stomach protrude. 


Did you know that Black women are much more likely to have fibroids? Now is the time to educate about fibroids and change the healthcare system and practices surrounding women’s health. We need more knowledge and understanding, safety, and support.
