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

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

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

I am overweight and previous c sections. I have fibroids and adenmyosis. I have been given the option of mirena (levonorgestrel) coil or ablation which one is the best?
Mirena (levonorgestrel): You have enough risk factors that the ablation isn't worth it. Try mirena, (levonorgestrel) if that doesn't work, hysterectomy of a type would be a better choice. The risk of failure after an ablation seems high to me. At age 34, you have an average of another 17 years until menopause. This is a long time for an ablation to be a good enough fix for the number of problems that you have. If Mirena (levonorgestrel) works, great. ...Read more

What`s the best treatment for :Exophytic Fibroid at the Fundus of the Uterus measuring 5.0 x 4.4 x 4.4?? Thanks
Best: If you are 45 years old and the fibroid is not causing problems with bleeding/pressure, the best treatment is probably to do nothing. If its causing symptoms consider hysterectomy, UFE, or possibly myomectomy. If you are not 45 years old - you should always give your correct age - it would depend on whether you have wishes for pregnancy in the future. ...Read more
