I had fibroids removed 3 years ago and my heavy bleeding stopped and periods were very normal until recently bleeding heavily again. Can fibroids return?

Hi @pbeach. Dr. Stewart provided this response to your question: “The same fibroids do not return after removal, but new ones can form. That is one limitation to all alternatives to hysterectomy. It is worth seeing your provider to see if the fibroids return or perhaps now there is a separate reason for your bleeding.”
