    I’ve read somewhere that if a mother has fibroids, the risk of her daughter getting them is three times higher than average. Is it true?

    Yes, it’s true. Scientists identified genetic risk for uterine fibroids: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/10/121004121550.htm

    Family health history of fibroids is important factor. It definitely increases the risk of developing fibroids sometime in your life.
