I'm 4weeks pregnant. I want to have a medical abortion cos I had a surgical one 3mths ago. Wat do I take & I have uterine fibroids.

I'm 4weeks pregnant. I want to have a medical abortion cos I had a surgical one 3mths ago. Wat do I take & I have uterine fibroids.

Need an evaluation: I agree with my colleagues suggestions below that you should be seen by an ob/gyn. If you have not had sex since your last abortion, this may represent a persistence of a pregnancy or incomplete abortion from 3 mos ago. If you have had sex & have conceived again, then you need to discuss your options with a physician (& family, etc.) & also consider more effective contraception for the future. ...Read more

Hi doc. I have three fibroids the locations are right posterior, right fundal and left anterior, can I become pregnant with that?

Maybe: Fibroids has affect fertility in multiple ways - block the tube, prevent proper contraction of the uterus, and cause inflammation. Muscular fibroids on average decrease pregnancy rates by about 20% and submucosal fibroids have more effect. Fibroids > 5 cm also have a greater effect. So a fertility specialist can help MAP out the fibroids and get a better look to give you better guidance. ...Read more

I had an ultrasound and was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid of 2.4cm. I tested for possible pregnancy and all three test came out positive.

I had an ultrasound and was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid of 2.4cm. I tested for possible pregnancy and all three test came out positive.

Uterine issues: Pregnancy can coincide with fibroids, although, ultrasound normally is able to reveal pregnancy unless it is way early in the course. Doing serial pregnancy hormone measurements may help determine whether the pregnancy is viable. Doing a repeat ultrasound in a week or two may help see the baby if it was too small at the time of the 1st ultrasound. ...Read more

I have a fibroid by my cervix, I am planning to get an abortion. Will this cause complications?

IT depends on where: And how big the fibroid is. Fibroids are typically inside the uterus, so as you say it is by the cervix there is certainly a risk of immense bleeding if a trocar or instrument is inserted into your cervix, which will happen if there is any instrumentation associated with abortion procedure. I would be very careful in making sure the healthcare provider performing this procedure has a strategy. ...Read more

Can happen.: A diagnosis of "threatened abortion" indicates that you've experienced cramping/bleeding during pregnancy that raise concern for possible miscarriage, however your exam shows a closed cervix and a fetal heartbeat indicating that things might still be just fine. Threatened abortions can resolve and normal, healthy pregnancies result afterwards. Be seen by your OB for any further bleeding/pain. ...Read more

Depends: If you need to have an abortion, do not let fibroids, prevent you from obtaining an abortion because there are many specialists all over the nation who can provide a safe abortion with ultrasound if needed.

I have 3 fibroids, could I get pregnant before I will remove it. Its size is 6.73x6 cm/?

Possible: While possible to get pregnant with fibroids, the chance of getting pregnant varies with size and location of fibroid (s). Best to consult with gyn or fertility specialist to give you a more accurate prognosis taking the whole picture into account (age, semen analysis, tubal status, duration of fertility, fertility treatment history, etc). A 6cm fibroid can affect fertility depending on location. ...Read more

I have 3 fibroids, one is 6.73 cm. The the other two measured 3 cm. Is it possible to be pregnant first before doing the surgery?

Fibroids: Yes it is possible to get pregnant prior to removal of fibroids. But, a lot depends on the location of the fibroids. In certain positions the fibroids can put a pregnancy at risk.
