While researchers have yet to determine a specific cause for uterine fibroids, it has been discovered that one factor leading to fibroids could be abuse as a child.
In a study conducted by Slone Epidemiology Center (SEC) at Boston University that followed 9,910 premenopausal African-American women, lead researcher Dr. Lauren A. Wise found that the incidence of uterine fibroids was increased by 16 percent among women who had been physically abused during childhood and by 34 percent among women who had been sexually abused as a child.
"This is the second prospective study to show an association between childhood abuse and uterine fibroids diagnosed during adulthood," Wise said in a release, citing that psychosocial stress could be to blame, affecting how sex steroid hormones are metabolized. Research has shown those hormones are thought to be involved in fibroid development and growth.
