A 44-year-old female asked:

Can fibroids cause you to have vaginal bleeding during the entire 9 months of pregnancy & not cause a miscarriage?

Not usually: Fibroids are more likely to cause pain than bleeding in pregnancy. Other causes of bleeding such as a placenta too close to your cervix, bleeding from your placenta, a shortening cervix or cervical infection would be more common and need to be eliminated as the cause of bleeding.
