If the fibroid is close to the endometrium and causes irregular or heavy bleeding then surgery may be appropriate. Pain from large, bulky fibroids may also be an indication for surgery.

Surgery is a reasonable treatment option when: Heavy uterine bleeding and/or anemia has continued after several months of therapy with birth control hormones and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Fibroids grow after menopause. The uterus is misshapen by fibroids and you have had repeat miscarriages or trouble getting pregnant. Fibroid pain or pressure affects your quality of life.
