Am I at Risk for Fibroids?
BDO: Who is more likely to grow fibroids?
Dr. Linda Bradley: The major risk factors for women having fibroids and women who are still menstruating, we call them reproductive age women. Mostly as women get into their 20s 30s 40s and 50s would have a risk factor.
Women who are a little bit over their ideal body weight or obese have an increased risk of fibroids. Also, women who haven’t had children are at increased risk of having uterine fibroids. Null a parity meaning no children, weight, family history and genetics
