Endometrial polyp: There are several factors. First the size, location of the polyp will determine the treatment. Also as for the fibroids your gynecologist can discuss the various treatments from embolization, to ablation to surgical removal and even hormonal therapy

Depends... D&C?: well, it depends on how much it is causing.. most of the time over 40 I recommend a uterine biopsy (called a EMB done in office) that is not 100% but pretty good to be sure not really a cancer. then if ok can try medical things to shed it or may need a D and C ( if u dont want more kids, ask possible ablation at same time0... hope this helps

A 33-year-old member asked:

How do fibroids affect pregnancy?

12 doctor answers28 doctors weighed in
Dr. Felecia Dawson

Sometimes a problem.: Fibroids are estrogen sensitive. Pregnancy is a high estrogen state, therefore, fibroids can grow during this time. Fibroids can prevent pregnancy, increase miscarriage, lead to breech presentation, cause pain as they grow, cause preterm labor, lead to postpartum hemorrhage, and increase the need for cesarean section. You may also need a cesarean if you have had fibroids removed before.

What effects will fibroids have on my pregnancy?

FROM NONE TO A LOT: Many women have fibroids without having any problems with their pregnancy. It depends on size and location. If your fibroids are large or located inside the lining of the uterus, they could cause a lot of trouble. Fibroids can lower the chance of getting pregnant, increase the chance of miscarriage, cause preterm labor, bad pain and increased risk of cesarean section.

What causes uterine fibroids, how common are they, and what happens if they are left untreated?

Dr. Nicholas Fogelson
Specializes in Gynecology
Multifactorial: Fibroids are non-cancerous muscle tumors of the uterus. They develop because of a mutation in a uterine muscle cell that causes that cell to lose control of its growth. They are very common in some ethnic groups, and present in women of all backgrounds. They can cause heavy bleeding, pain, infertility, and pregnancy complications, or may cause no problems at all, depending on where they are.

Is there any way of knowing you have uterine fibroids?

Yes: Pelvic exam and ultrasound are the best ways to determine if you have fibroids. Some fibroids are asymptomatic and are usually found when an ultrasound is performed for other reasons (ie, pregnancy). Unless you are experiencing any symptoms from fibroids, such as heavy bleeding or pelvic pain, there is no benefit to screen for fibroids alone.

Don't worry, see OB.: Make an appointment with your ob. They may get an early sono to evaluate the size of the fibroids. Even patients with large fibroids may have a normal full-term pregnancy.
