This post was most recently updated on August 5th, 2018

  • Why do black women get fibroids?

African American women are 2 to 3 times more likely to have uterine fibroids than Caucasian women. Not only that. The incidence of occurrence and the pace of growth of fibroids is more prevalent in black woman than other racial groups.

You don’t have to be an angel to know that all the hormonal problems including Fibroids are result of toxic lifestyles.

  • Fibroids are the number 1 reason for hysterectomy in the US.

If you experience more abdominal pain and heavy bleeding every month, you may be heading towards a major surgery or hysterectomy.

  • What causes heavy periods and pelvic pain? 

The fibroids are rock like noncancerous tumours grow in the uterus. As the growth of fibroids increases, the uterus lining stretches and causes gushing like heavy periods. It also presses pelvic nerves and causes heavy pain in the pelvic area.

So in this article, you are going to learn five reasons why African-American women are more likely to get fibroids.

1.Hair relaxing products

  • New study links relaxers to fibroids

STUDY DONE ON 23,000 AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN showed that women who used hair relaxing products were more likely to have fibroids. Specifically, fibroids may be linked to the chemical exposure through scalp burns that result from relaxers.Read more

So if you use a relaxer you have more risk of getting uterine fibroids. A recent study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology has found a link between the use of hair relaxers and the condition that is estimated to affect 80 percent of Black women over their lifetime.Read more

2.Abuse During Childhood

According to a new study from the Slone Epidemiology Center (SEC) at Boston University, African-American women who reported sexual or physical abuse before age 11 had a greater risk of uterine fibroids in adulthood compared with women who had no such abuse history. The association was strongest for women who experienced sexual abuse. Read more

3.Obesity and weight gain after childbirth

Some studies suggest that obesity might play a role in fibroid development. This is particularly important for African American women, who are 1.4 times more likely to be obese than non-Hispanic white women. Read more

In women of African origin, weight gain after childbirth increases the risk of contracting uterine fibroids. African-origin women who reach a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 kg/m, after having children, are at greatest risk for suffering from uterine fibroids compared to African-origin women who remain thin after bearing children. Reducing your weight and maintaining a healthy BMI is very important for women of African origin. Read More

4.Eating less Dairy foods

With the knowledge that fibroid rates are two to three times higher in black women than white women, coupled with evidence that blacks consume fewer servings of dairy foods (and thus have lower mean intakes of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus) than whites,8 Wise and colleagues investigated the disparity in dairy intake among these two populations as a potential factor in fibroid growth.

5.Insufficient levels of Vitamin D

A study has estimated that only 10% of African-American women have sufficient levels of Vitamin D in their blood. In the same study, 25% of Caucasian women had normal levels of  Vitamin D.
