Fibroid pregnancy: If the uterine cavity shape is not affected by the fibroid your pregnancy should be unaffected. That can be determine with imaging ordered by your physician. A medication called Lupron (leuprolide) may also be given for a period of 6 months to try and srink the fibroid. Also a robotic or laproscopic surgery to remove the fibroid would be another option. The procedure is called a myomectomy. ...Read more

I was jst diagnosed with a uterine fibroid im 36 an I've no kids. Fibroid is 9m isit able to be removed in still hve my uterus an kids? Ov are good.

Hard to say: The ability to preserve reproductive ability after fibroid surgery depends on size and location. Your question lists yours as 9M, which most would interpret as about 27 feet in size, which I doubt; if it is 9MM, which is relatively tiny. I would think removal could be done, but would be un-necessary and this likely has no effect on your fertility.Talk it over with your docs. ...Read more

Avoid phytoestrogens: Fibroids are a result of high estrogen levels. High estrogen can be caused by excessive carbohydrate intake (via competetive inhibition of glucoronidase enzyme) therefore a low carb diet is beneficial to reduce estrogen and help shrink fibroids. You may also have low iodine, thyroid problems, low progesterone. All of these things should be evaluated. All phytoestrogens should be avoided. ...Read more

What do I do for fibroids that are still growing even though I don't have periods any more, other than taking out my uterus?

It may be more concerning if there is rapid growth and or bleeding. Options for conservative treatment include uterine artery embolization or a laparoscopic myomectomy (removal of the fibroid and keeping the uterus). ...Read more

Usually not: Most pregnant women who have fibroids will not experience any complications with their pregnancy either. However, fibroids during pregnancy do increase your risk of miscarriage or preterm labor slightly. Occasionally, complications can arise if your fibroids become very large. Complications can include:



postpartum hemorrhaging
obstructed labor (if the fibroid grows into the birth canal)
fetal malpresentations (sometimes fibroids grow into the uterus, forcing your baby into an unusual position)
stalled labor
