Uterine Fibroid or myoma is a non-cancerous, benign growth in the uterus. They are also called fibromyoma, myofibroma and fibroleiomyoma.
Fibroids vary in size and in location, they may be Intra mural (inside the cavity), Submucosal (in the wall of the uterus), Subserosal (on the outer side of uterus) or in the cervix at times.
Fibroids are typically found during the middle and later reproductive years and commonly seen in overweight women.

1.Increasing estrogen hormone levels.
3.Suppressed sexual desires and functions
