    I hope someone can help me. I am 44 years old and have had fibro for 12 years. In the past few months I have been having cramping in the pelvic area, heavy periods, and periods that are coming closer together. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with a pea sized fibroid inside the uterus. Can these get bigger over time? Maybe I'm just premenopausal. If anyone has experience with this please respond.
    Thanks,
    Terry

    Dear Terry:

    I advise you to see your OB/GYN. This type of bleeding is not normal. If it is fibroids you need to deal with them. It also could be other problems. When did you last have a pelvic exam or PAP smear?

    I have been having problems with excessive bleeding for over a year. Tried medicine. Tried D&C. Now I am looking at having a total abdominal hysterectomy due to pre-cancerous cells found during D&C.

    Good luck.
