Uterine fibroids & hysterectomies with Dr. Jeff Fahy, Gynecologist in Bay Minette, Alabama

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that commonly appear during a woman’s childbearing years. They can range in size and quantity, even causing enlargement of the lower abdomen. Additionally, fibroids can cause heavy bleeding, frequent urination, lower back pain and complications with pregnancy. While the cause behind fibroids is unknown, research is showing that hormones and genetics could be a factor. African American women are also more likely to experience fibroids.

Dr. Jeff Fahy with Premier Women’s Health in Bay Minette shares that many treatment options are available for fibroids. He encourages women, “Get checked at the first sign of discomfort because early intervention is extremely effective in reducing the likelihood of hysterectomy.”
