What are they? Are they dangerous? What causes them? Can you get rid of them? How quickly do they grow?

Doctor says "nothing to worry about" - but of course, they hurt, so I worry

Any advice gladly received

um, not sure if this is v helpful, but my mum had them around the time she had me and my sis. in her case they led to v v painful, heavy periods and anaemia. she had ops to remove them a couple of times.

she found it v stressful, esp as her (female) GP wasn't v helpful - wd just witter on about the cost of sanitary towels instead of doing anything to help.

there is some info here about what fibroids are etc.

what does your doctor suggest for the pain?
