Dr. Gyn, I took next choice pills -2 the 4th time in a yr. Didn't have symptoms and I have a large fibroid. My periods have delayed. Am I pregnant?
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

Yes they can:
Fibroids are benign (non cancerous) tumors of the uterus that are associated with painful, heavy periods. Depending on their location, they can certainly cause bleeding unrelated to your cycle.

I'm 45. No children, peri-menopausal, no period in 3 months, fibroids biggest 8 cm. Can I insist on not having a hysterectomy?
