Re: Can a uterine fibroid tumor cause a longer period?
I do know that fibroids can make you bleed more. Have you had an ultrasound done to rule out polyps or had an endometrial biopsy? Are you bleeding heavily for those three weeks or is it more of a nusience type bleed?
Reason I ask is that I have a golf-ball sized fibroid along with a 12-14 week size uterus. I recently had an ultrasound and I do have a polyp and am going in for a D&C next month and hopefully, have an ablation done at the same time. I don't bleed for weeks, just heavily for a few days at the start of my cycle.
