Consider fibroid emb: Are you having symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding or pelvic pain from the fibroids. If not i wouldn't recommend any treatment. If you are having symptoms, i think you should consider fibroid embolization instead of surgery. It is an outpatient, minimally invasive procedure associated with minimal risks with similar results as surgery..
