My fibroid uterusis 5.3cm with myomas in anterior wall and the ovaries are normal, what does that mean?

You have a fibroid!: Anyone can get a uterine fibroid, which is an overgrowth of muscle cells in the shape of a ball. Like moles on the skin, they come in different sizes/shapes; RARELY cancerous. You only need surgery if you have symptoms like pain/pressure/incontinence/bleeding/bloating. Size/location don't matter. Lupron (leuprolide) or embolization are ways to control w/out surgery. US follow up is very important. ...Read more

I underwent myomectomy via lap before 3 weeks.What is the normal recovery time to get pregnant again?(2 myomas 3*3cm-submucous &intramural).

Unknown: I would have suspected your post op instructions to suggest delaying sex or pregnancy, at least through a couple of normal cycles after the surgery. No sex, no pregnancy, no worry. See your OB and figure it out. If the uterus was possibly weakened with the resections, that could be an issue with a pregnancy and weak wall! ...Read more

Yes: A fibroid is a myoma or muscle tumor of the uterus. The rest of this describes its location. It is on the top of the uterus (fundal) in back ( dorsal) and sticking out (exophytic) under the covering ( serosa). A scant amount of fluid in the space between the colon and the uterus ( the cul de sac) is normal. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Diag with "1.2cm posterior intramural body fibroid abutting the endometrial stripe."  isn't what was described actually a submucous fibroid? Confused.
