Maybe: Re0opening fallopian tubes at the narrowest juncture to the uterus (isthmus) is a very, very difficult microsurgical procedure and often fails. Removing the fibroids and considering IVF is a better choice as IUI in your present condition is a non starter.

High Complex questn: Your question and suggested diagnosis is good but too complex to answer safely in this forum. See a doctor to discuss details of your case so that the appropriate diagnostics can be performed, depending on the specifics of your condition.
No: If I understand you correctly, you're asking if it's okay to have an intrauterine contraceptive device and a fibroid at the same time, and the answer to that is yes, it's definitely okay to have the iud in place.
Indirect association: While vit D and calcium are not used to treat fibroids there is a connection between the two. African-American women have the highest incidence of fibroids (up to 80%) and they are more deficient in vitamin D than other racial groups as well. It is important for everyone to have their vit D levels checked regularly and supplement daily if necessary.See 1 more doctor answer
Safe:yes, effctv:no: Every surgical procedure has risks associated with it (for d&c: perforation, infection, scarring inside the uterus, bleeding, potential weakening of cervix). They are rare for d&c's. But more importantly: they do not typically fix the problem of heavy periods. They can improve things for a few months, but the underlying problem (fibroid/hormone imbalance) doesn't go away. Need to look at other txs.

Perhaps: All doctors do not perform abortions but most can refer you to a doctor that does. It is usually considered safest to get this done before 12 weeks if you decide that it is really what you want to do. Talk to friends and family before you make this important decision. You do not have much time.See 1 more doctor answer

Dying fibroid: When a fibroid outgrows its blood supply, areas of it can die off. This event can be very painful to a patient, even causing her to go to the Emergency Room. For degenerating fibroid (s) on the right side, this can even simulate appendicitis. Degenerating fibroids often eventually calcify which can be detected on pelvic imaging (exs. X-ray, CT scan, ultrasound).See 1 more doctor answer
Not enough info: Fibroids are very common benign tumors. They are found in a woman's uterus and can be discovered during a routine pelvic exam or pelvic ultrasound. If there are no symptoms (exs. Heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, increased urinary frequency) no treatment is necessary unless it is determined that the fibroid is preventing a fertility patient from getting pregnant or causing her to miscarry.
Not necessarily.: Many, many women have fibroids as they get older. Most don't even know they have them. If you are having symptoms due to them, like heavy periods, etc., then they may be worth treating. Discuss your options with your doctor. Very very rarely, a fibroid can become cancerous.

Large Fibroid: I'm not sure what your question is? This is a large fibroid the size of a baby's head. It can be removed by myomectomy without much difficulty. You are only 37 years old and it's to soon to remove your uterus unless you are finished with childbearing. Check out www. Chicagofibroid. Com for more information about fibroids.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Fibroids are benign tumors of the uterus made up of smooth muscle and fibrous tissue. They are hard and firm to the touch. When they are located in the front of the uterus they can be felt by the patient or the physician on physical exam. They can enlarge a woman's uterus like a pregnancy and its size is often compared in those terms.See 1 more doctor answer
