Treatment is usually done because of these symptoms. You can wait until the symptoms are bad enough to make you happy to get rid of them.

PCOS and fundal fibroid (2.0x1.8cm) Dr said it was high and wasn't a concern now months later Dr says it may need removed before I try fertility med?

Fibroids & fertility: Usually if the fibroid is just 2cm and isn't sitting along the lining of the uterus, it's not necessary for it to be removed. It would be helpful if you had the ultrasound report and the exact wording they used. The options are usually "subserosal", "intramural" or "submucosal". At 2 cm, usually just the submucosal type would need to be removed. ...Read more

If i will be undergoing myomectomy surgery -fundal fibroids ( 3) , in my 30's, what is normal hb (hemoglobin)?Do i need blood transfusion ?

About 12-16 g/dL.: Normal hemoglobin for an adult female is between 12-16 g/dl (7.4-9.9 mmol/l). You might need blood, like 2 units for your surgery to replace any blood lost. If you are anemic, which might be the case in these circumstances, you might need more.
