Fibroid ? fertility: The issue of fibroids and fertility is unclear. What experts agree is that if the fibroid reduces the space within the uterine canal is likely to cause infertility. You need an hsg to determine if the fibroid enters the uterine cavity. A 6 cm fibroid is not that big and if it is on the outside of the uterine wall is most likely will not cause problems.
