3. Pain During Intercourse.
Typically when adults have intercourse, the experience is not necessarily painful down there. However, if you notice when you are having intercourse that it does in fact hurt down there, then this should be a red flag for you. Many women tend to experience painful intercourse when fibroids begin to grow around the vaginal lining area, which is a clear indicator to go and get checked out by your doctor. A recent study demonstrated that the large majority of subjects experienced pain during intercourse due to fibroid development, which suggests that this is a fairly universal sign. If you notice that you are having any pain down there during intercourse, make sure to make an appointment with your doctor and monitor your symptoms.
