27 yrs old unmarried.Recently, laparoscopic surgery done (removing large 8cm uterus fibroid).After surgery, how many days bleeding goes on?

Bleeding(answer 1): First of all and probably most important is where exactly is the bleeding at? Next is for how long has the bleeding been taking place? Then, how much bleeding is there? If it is at the skin incisions, for just a day, and just spots of blood on your dressing, then I wouldn't worry too much. Just keep your routine follow up appointment.

I have had two fibroid removal surgeries, which were both done as a laproscopy through the vagina. I still have fibroids. Can I have a baby?

Depends....: That's a hard question to answer in this format. It depends on where the remaining fibroids are located. The closer to the uterine lining, the worse your chances. Also depends on the size of the fibroids and the presence/absence of scar tissue. You really need an evaluation of the uterine cavity (hysteroscopy or sonohystogram or HSG).
