With the given clinical history, it appears as though you have developed hormonal imbalance and this added by the fibroid effect, is leading to the heavy periods. Endometriosis and polycystic ovaries have been ruled out. In the current scenario, I would also suggest going for hormone therapy after a complete clinical evaluation after excluding all other possible causes for the clinical picture. Please also maintain a healthy weight, regular exercise and a healthy diet. The fibroid, being small in size needs observation and no intervention is needed if it is asymptomatic. Hope this helps.
