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".

I am post menopausal my FSH level is 85, also had a transvaginal scan which showed pco and very small fibroids, keep having bad cramps I am 42?
Cramping postmenopau: If i understand correctly you are a 42-year-old woman in early menopause with cramping and with known fibroid tumors. This phenomenon is easily explained by the fact that these fibroids will undergo spontaneous degenerationbecause of the declining estrogen levels. I would start with an ultrasound to confirm that they are shrinking and that they are the source of the pain. ...Read more
