Pregnancy and low back pain: Fibroid may be the cause
Before Talking About the Cause You May want to Know What Fibroid is:
A fibroid can be called tumor or a non-cancerous growth found in or outside the uterus. It can also be called myoma. This Fibroid mimics the presence of a child in the womb, taking up nutrients from the woman and growing. It occurs mostly in the women from at least the age of 16 years and at most 50 years of age,
This means that if a woman fails to bear a child before the age of 25-30 years she is most likely to develop fibroid, and if a woman stops bearing children very early like from 35 to 45 years she is likely to develop fibroids.
This shows that fibroid dominantly occurs during childbearing age. Once the woman enters menopausal age the fibroids in her womb dry up because of the withdrawal of hormone (estrogen).
Most of the time women do not know that they have fibroids in their womb unless scanning is carried out. By this time they must have started experiencing some symptom of fibroid which would take them to their health professional who recommended the scanning. Some fibroids do not show any symptoms at all and can only be discovered through a vaginal examination.
Truth About Fibroid and low back pain in pregnancy
Fibroids are found in and around the uterus and uterus is found in the pelvic cavity. As I said earlier that fibroids are of different sizes. When they are small the effects are felt more in the abdomen. But if they are as big as Watermelon the effect is definitely felt all over the Pelvic bones because this time the growth is affecting the nerves both of the spine, the pelvic ligaments, descending down to the legs all these cause low back pain.
The small ones with the presence of a growing baby sometimes cause spotting, or actual bleeding or may even cause miscarriage, this also causes pain at the low backbones. The big ones depending on where they grow may not allow the baby to stay in the first place.
What is The Actual Cause of Fibroid
The actual cause of Fibroid is not known. Though Fibroid is believed to be caused by estrogen since it occurs mostly when its presence is high and shrinks when it is withdrawn from the body during menopause. If this estrogen is in excess it will begin to form abnormal tissues known as tumors including fibroid. This hormone called estrogen is a hormone that prepares women for pregnancy and when the pregnancy does not occur its accumulation in the blood gives rise to a condition known as estrogen dominance.

Locations and Types of Fibroids
These fibroids are named according to their positions in the walls of the uterus
- Uterus has three layers; which are perimetrium (outside). Fibroids that grow in this area grow outside the uterus they are intramural fibroid and they are covered by the outer membrane of the uterus, can become quite big that when you see the woman she will look seven months pregnant. It may not disturb the growth of the baby in the womb. Due to its rapid growth, it may contribute to discomfort the woman feels during pregnancy such as back pain, leg pain, and others.
- Endometrium: this is the muscle of the uterus or middle layer of the uterus. The fibroids that grow here are called Subserosal Fibroids.They are covered by the muscle of the uterus, depending on the size may still allow the growth of the baby in the uterus.
- Myometrium: This is the innermost layer of the uterus. It is covered by the mucous membrane.The fibroids that grow here are called submucosal fibroids. They grow between the inner and outer layer and can protrude into the uterine cavity. It may occupy the whole cavity and will not allow the baby to stay or may leave a small space for the baby to grow in keeping the baby in a distressed condition.
- Cervical Fibroids: This type of fibroid is rare in occurrence but when it occurs sometimes blocks the mouth of the cervix. When this happens either that the fibroid will not allow the baby to go in or baby inside to come out. The baby can only be saved by the surgical process (caesarian section)
