Depends on location: if the fibroids is significantly distorting the endometrial cavity, it will be of benefit (assuming all other factors are normal). Fibroids outside of the endometrial cavity or that are pedunculated, may not reduce your chances of getting pregnant and may not be neccessary to remove them. Speak to your GYN who can discuss this further with you . Best wishes
