number of tumors increases within the uterus it makes it even harder for the sperms to reach the egg,
due to the fact that the tumors compress the Fallopian tube which may prevent fertilization from
If the fertilization process was able to be complete the egg would still not be able to attach itself safely,
because of the rise in the levels of estrogen and progesterone within the body during pregnancy.The
increase in the hormonal levels further increases the chances of developing, leading to even more
pain and discomfort.

rid of them, it is because of that severe cramps can occur.Sometimes the stalk like growth that the tumor
attaches itself to might twirl, this small adjustment will cause severe pain around the pelvic area.
Other things such as a profound feeling of discomfort during intercourse can also be due to the growth
of the tumor in that area,lastly as the growth begins to deteriorate due to insufficient blood circulation it

troublesome and problematic.
Another thing to take note of is that the these things start to increase in size the also exert pressure on
both the abdomen and the uterus, which means its more likely for them to press against the pelvic
bones.This can lead to a rapid decline in the passing of urine in some cases it can further cause a very
