Interpretation: A fibroid is a smooth muscle growth in your right section at the top of your uterus next to the right Fallopian tube. It is in the process of "falling apart"(degenerating) which can cause bleeding and pain. The right ovary is shrunken (atrophic) which is common in post menopausal women.

Yes: Most women with fibroids do not have problems conceiving and can have a safe and healthy pregnancy. However, sometimes fibroids can cause significant fertility and pregnancy issues. Many women wonder if they should have surgery before conceiving. This is a very individualized decision. Please talk with your gyn or a reproductive endocrinologist. Consider a second opinion before major surgery.
