Ovulation After Myomectomy
A myomectomy is the procedure when fibroids are removed and the uterus remains. Myomectomies can be done in a variety of ways, depending on the location of the fibroids. Fiboids in the uterine cavity can often be removed hysteroscopically, with no abdominal incision. Depending on size and location, myomectomies can be done laparoscopicaaly, ...Read more
The slimy stuff that appears to signal ovulation stopped for about 3 years now. Just went through myomectomy and wondering if it will help to correc?
Probably not: The slimy stuff is probably cervical mucus. You could have several reasons for not having much. One big reason is not ovulating so check for that. The fibroids probably did not affect ovulation or mucus. See a specialist to do an exam and help check your cycles. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer
Does myomectomy stop ovulation? Went through myomectomy 3 weeks ago. Saw my menstrual cycle 2weeks ago
I have a myomectomy 1 1/2 months ago I still haven't been ovulating, my sex drive is decreasing, My period is irregular also I want to have a baby?
Fibroids: Fibroids don't effect ovulation or libido but the stress of surgery can and scar tissue from myomectomy can decrease fertility. It may be that as you get further out from the surgery you will start ovulating. If not, it will be time to start looking into what is causing the failure to ovulate. The issue of desire may be related to depression because you aren't conceiving as fast as you would like.
What was prescribed: After major surgery it is important to follow your surgeons instructions exactly as directed. You should take the medications he or she prescribed. You should not take anything else without clearing it with your surgeon.
Very Common: Many women have fibroids. Some women don't have problems from fibroids, but other women have painful periods, heavy bleeding, pelvic pressure, pain with sex, or infertility. The only way to remove fibroids is surgery and so myomectomy is very common. Myomectomy can be done in different ways so not every surgery is the same.See 1 more doctor answer
Removal of fibroids: A myomectomy is the procedure when fibroids are removed and the uterus remains. Myomectomies can be done in a variety of ways, depending on the location of the fibroids. Fiboids in the uterine cavity can often be removed hysteroscopically, with no abdominal incision. Depending on size and location, myomectomies can be done laparoscopicaaly, robotically and my laparotomy.
Alternative idea: Fibroids are tissue growth that affect the uterus. They are extremely common and present in up to 50% of women (i've seen as high as 70% quoted). They commonly cause abnormal bleeding and a hysteroscopic myomectomy is done to remove fibroids that protrude into the cavity of the uterus as an alternative to hysterecomty. It's done through the cervix with minimal anesthesia. A nice little surgery.
A GYN Procedure: Where they go in, under sedation usually, through the uterus and take out growths of muscle tissue of the uterus that should not be there and usually are responsible for pain and bleeding (fibroids). It is the alternative method of reaching them to a surgical approach through the abdomen by some means. Hysteroscopic means they are going up through the inside of the uterus.
Couple of ideas: Only 5 weeks out, you can certainly still be having post-op pain. Scar tissue may be an issue as well. Did you have this pain prior to surgery? Best to check with your obgyn and good luck!
