Fibroids and Fertility

Dear. Dr. Parker

I need your Second Opinion, as am preparing for the second Laparoscopy surgery in order to remove 11.5 cm fibroid, after six years of Abdominal Myomectomy..

I was planning to conceive by IVF treatment, but unfortunately by doing MIR scanning thy found large size fibroid 11.5cm.

Thank you

Reda,

Fibroids only interfere with fertility if they bulge into, or are very near, the uterine cavity.  If not, pregnancy is possible.  Also, fibroids only very, very rarely interfere with an ongoing pregnancy.  See these webpages for more information: http://www.fibroidsecondopinion.com/fibroids-and-pregnancy/ , http://www.fibroidsecondopinion.com/2010/11/fibroids-leiomyomas-at-routine-second-trimester-ultrasound-examination-and-adverse-obstetric-outcomes/
