Fibroids: The only way to currently & truly "get rid" of any fibroid is surgery. The best situation is a solitary smaller fibroid that is accessible to hysteroscopic resection where there are no incisions other that in the uterus, or uterine artery embolization or using freezing or microwaving but these only "shrink" the tumors and in my opinion are quite experimental.

Myomectomy: The fibroids can be removed and the uterus left in place for future successful conception. There are skilled gyn md's who can do this procedure.

Yes: The fibroid removal (myomectomy) can be combined with a tubal ligation procedure as long as the first procedure does not produce significant bleeding.
