How is an enlarged uterus from fibroids like pregnancy?
Well, if you look at a pregnancy the uterus is like a little sack and there’s a baby growing in it. From the outside we just see the sack is big, a fibroid is in the muscle of the uterus, and it’s not supposed to be there but it’s still a mass. When you feel it from the outside, it feels like a pregnancy.
It’s not a pregnancy, but it feels like a pregnancy. And the way we measure pregnancy is by how big the uterus is and so to some women they think they’re pregnant but then they bleed and then they realize something is not right. And that’s how we kind of compare that to pregnancy in terms of size but there’s no other comparison.
