A 41-year-old member asked:

does 1 cm fibroid on front of uterus effect fertility?

Usually not: A small fibroid like yours is doesn't effect fertility unless it is on the inner lining of the uterus and protrudes into the cavity of the uterus. Then it can impact fertility by increasing the chance of a miscarriage.

Depends on Location: If it is in the lining or endometrium (submucosal) it may impair implantation. If it is in the wall (intramural) or on the outside (subserosal or pedunculated) then no.

How do fibroids affect pregnancy?

12 doctor answers28 doctors weighed in
Dr. Felecia Dawson
Obstetrics and Gynecology 35 years experience
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.

How will having a tipped uterus influence my baby and my labor?

Dr. Stephen Scarantino

Not much...: Some women with a tipped (retroverted) uterus can experience pelvic discomfort during the first trimester as the uterus grows out of the pelvis. The orientation of the uterus will not influence your baby. Alternatively, some women may experience "back labor" due to the tipped orientation of their uterus.

There are some risks: Uterine didelphys or "double uterus" is when the uterus and cervix are paired. There is increased risks of bleeding, fetal malpresentation (breech), premature labor and issues related to the growth of your baby.

A 36-year-old female asked:

Does endometrial hyperplasia typically present with an enlarged uterus?

No: If it presents in any way, it is usually abnormal bleeding. Hyperplasia won't enlarge your whole uterus - just abnormally thicken the lining.
