Not unusual: It's not unusual to have some abnormal bleeding following an open myomectomy. If it persists after a couple of months, you may need to be evaluated to see if you are ovulating. ...Read more

Gyn.I ve a large fibroid, it's like been 6 months pregnant  I was told . If I became pregnant will the uterus burst/rapture? My periods have delayed .

Hmm.: Your uterus won't 'burst' or rupture if you get pregnant. That is a risk is you have had certain types of surgery on your uterus (c-section, or myomectomy) and become pregnant. But if you have never had surgery on your uterus it would be extremely rare for it to 'rupture'. If your uterus is really that enlarged from the fibroid, it will make the pregnancy high risk and fibroid may need to be remov. ...Read more

Is it at all possible for a large uterine fibroid to stop or delay your period?

Is it at all possible for a large uterine fibroid to stop or delay your period?

Unusual: Your cycle can be affected by many things, stress, medicines, ovarian cysts and fibroids can affect your cycles as well. Usually fibroids will cause your cycle to be heavier, longer or more frequent. It depends on what is considered large. I would rule out other causes before assuming it is the fibroid. ...Read more

Yes: Having uterine fibroids is independent of your period. Fibroids are benign tumors that involve the uterus. While most pre-menopausal women with fibroids have no symptoms, it is very rare for post-menopausal women to have any symptoms (and of those they are usually recently post-menopausal and complain of increased urinary frequency). ...Read more

I'm 32 yo have a 3cmx2.6cmx2cm posterior submucosal fibroid. Endrometrial measures .7cm. Mild endro fluid. Recently 10 & 12 day period. Suggestions?

Fibroid & TTC: If you are trying to conceive, and the myoma is close to the uterine lining, we usually recommend removal if 3 cm or more. A single larger myoma is often removed easily with a robotic myomectomy. But, if multiple fibroids are present, then an open laparotomy may be considered. ...Read more
