BIGGEST FERTILITY EXPO OF THE YEAR WILL ADDRESS BLACK WOMEN'S TOP HEALTH ISSUES

Miami, FL  Did you know that anywhere between 20 to 70% of women will develop uterine fibroids by the time they turn 50. Although these benign tumors found within or on the uterus, can affect all women, Black women are about 3 times more likely than white women to develop fibroids, and they tend to develop them at a younger age than other women. They can grow as large as melons. Symptoms include excessive menstrual bleeding, painful cramping, and pelvis, lower back pain and infertility.

According to Lauren Wise, professor of epidemiology at Boston University, "Approximately 30 percent of reproductive-aged women are diagnosed with fibroids." Yet studies reveal that while “approximately 70 percent of white women will have uterine fibroids by age 50," that number is greater than 80 percent for African-American women. In addition to this, black women are "more likely to report severe or very severe symptoms," Wise pointed out.
