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.

I'll be 49 this year. I have 3 fibroids. At my age should I just live with my heavy periods and pain, being do close to menopause ? Will it go away ?

Possibly: When you go through menopause your heavy periods will stop. The average age of menopause in the us is 51. If your heavy periods are affecting your life then you should have a hysterectomy. If you can wait then go for it. Make sure you aren't becoming anemic with symptoms of weakness, fatigue, dizzyness and appearing pale. For a minimally invasive hysterectomy call my office 714-997-9595. ...Read more
