If I have a fibroid of 22mm on the back wall of the uterus and it is making the uterus slightly heart shaped will this affect a pregnancy?

If I have a fibroid of 22mm on the back wall of the uterus and it is making the uterus slightly heart shaped will this affect a pregnancy?

Probably not: A fibroid's effect on fertility is a long standing debate in gynecology. This is a relatively small fibroid and unless it is impinging and/or protruding into the uterine cavity, it will probably not effect a pregnancy. Pregnancy will, however, usually lead to increase in size of the fibroid due to the rise in estrogen that occurs. Fibroids respond to elevation in estrogen levels by growing. ...Read more

Sonography report  Uterus is retroflexed & bulky & normal in shape. Thick Endometrium (15 mm).A posterior fibroid seen. What does it mean? Pregnancy?

Depends: If the ultrasound was done to detect a pregnancy, then this could mean that the pregnancy hormone concentration is too low and the pregnancy too young to be detected on ultrasound. It can also mean that the pregnancy is outside the uterus. Endometrium is thin at the beginning of the cycle and gets thicker until after ovulation. 15 mm is on the high end of what one would expect. ...Read more
