36 weeks preg. Baby is normal. Cephalic. Whether a c- section or normal delivery is good for me? I had a prev myomectomy removed very small fibroids (2cm)

36 weeks preg. Baby is normal. Cephalic. Whether a c- section or normal delivery is good for me? I had a prev myomectomy removed very small fibroids (2cm)

Operative report: Having a c-section after a myomectomy is dependent on the extensiveness of your surgery. If your surgery required entry into the inner uterine lining, then you might be at a higher risk of uterine rupture with a normal vaginal delivery. However your fibroids seem very small, unlikely to have done significant damage, especially if laparoscopic. Check with your ob; i'd lean towards vag delivery. ...Read more

Fibroids and birth: Woman can usually have natural birth when there are fibroids. When the fibroids are larger and in the low part of the uterus, they are more likely to interfere. They can cause obstruction, bleeding and increase the risk of ruptured uterus. Your OB can help determine if C-section is necessary. ...Read more

Had lap myomectomy 7 months back. Removed 2 fibrds (3*4cm).I heard after myomectomy I hav to deliver only through c- section. Is this true? Now am pregnt.

Your doc: Who did the myomectomy shoudld have told u that after the surgery when u had your post op check or sooner! It depends where the fibroids were removed from, if they had to cut into the endometrial cavity or close to it then u will need a csection, but u need to ask the doc who removed the fibroids. ...Read more

Had myomectomy-lap 7 months back. Removd 2 fibrds 3*4cm submocus intramural. Now pregnant 16 wks. Is it must to deliver through c-section after myomectomy?

It might be: A c/s is generally recommended following a myomectomy that required entry into the endometrial cavity of a full thickness myometrial repair. The doctor that did the myomectomy is the person that can best advise about the need for a c/s. If they recommend that you have a c/s then I would recommend that you have a c/s. If the doctor is not available then your OB should review the op note. ...Read more

I have a fibroid by my cervix, I am planning to get an abortion. Will this cause complications?

I have a fibroid by my cervix, I am planning to get an abortion. Will this cause complications?

IT depends on where: And how big the fibroid is. Fibroids are typically inside the uterus, so as you say it is by the cervix there is certainly a risk of immense bleeding if a trocar or instrument is inserted into your cervix, which will happen if there is any instrumentation associated with abortion procedure. I would be very careful in making sure the healthcare provider performing this procedure has a strategy. ...Read more

Because of having a fibroid at age 24 that if I wait 1 to 2 more years do you have any more children I may be at high risk of complications. True?

Depends: It really depends on where the fibroid is, as to whether or not it can affect a pregnancy. So long as the fibroid isn't in the center or lining of the uterus, doesn't typically interfere with pregnancy. Sometimes really big fibroids, those > 20cm in diameter, can make pregnancy painful, but rarely cause complications. ...Read more
