How can fibroids affect sexual intercourse?


So one of the things that happens is if the fibroid is big or it’s low down, during sexual intercourse that can be painful and we call it dyspareunia. And obviously once the fibroid is treated and starts to shrink down then that pain goes away, but also if a woman is bleeding for three weeks out of a month it’s very hard to have sexual intercourse, and it affects the husband or the partner they’re unhappy and a family, the kids, everybody is unhappy, so this one problem spreads a lot of unhappiness throughout the whole family.
