Well I have a fybroid of 7 cm. Im only 22 do I have a chance of having babies ?

Yes: Fibroids are common and many women with them become pregnant. Sometimes they can affect your ability to get pregnant, particularly if they are in the lining of the uterus where an embryo (potential baby) implants. Large fibroids (greater than 5cm) sometimes can also block the fallopian tubes making it difficult for the sperm to reach the eggs. If you have difficulty, see your doctor. ...Read more

While I am not a: gynecologic surgeon, I believe the answer to this is "yes." My understanding is that LAAM (laparoscopic assisted abdominal myomectomy) uses both a laparoscopic and lower pelvic (bikini line) incision to safely remove even larger fibroids than yours. I would investigate which GYN surgeons in your area have been trained in this technique and make an appointment for a consultation. Good wishes:) ...Read more

What causes fibroids? Can having fibroids and previous colposcopy reduce chances of being a good candidate for vbac?

What causes fibroids?  Can having fibroids and previous colposcopy reduce chances of being a good candidate for vbac?

Non-cancerous tumor: Fibroids are formed of uterine wall muscle cells that grown in and around the uterus. Colposcopy of the cervix with or with out biopsy should not affect vbac. However a large fibroid increases the risk of previous uterine scar rupturing. All depends on the location and size of the fibroid. You should discuss your concerns with your obstetrician. Base your decision of what's safer for you & baby. ...Read more

36 weeks preg. Baby is normal. Cephalic.Whether a c- section or normal delivery is good for me? I had a prev myomectomy removed very small fibroids(2cm)

36 weeks preg. Baby is normal. Cephalic.Whether a c- section or normal delivery is good for me? I had a prev myomectomy removed very small fibroids(2cm)

Operative report: Having a c-section after a myomectomy is dependent on the extensiveness of your surgery. If your surgery required entry into the inner uterine lining, then you might be at a higher risk of uterine rupture with a normal vaginal delivery . However your fibroids seem very small , unlikely to have done significant damage , especially if laparoscopic. Check with your ob; i'd lean towards vag delivery. ...Read more

I have 3 fibroids, could i get pregnant before i will remove it. Its size is 6.73x6 cm/?

Possible: While possible to get pregnant with fibroids, the chance of getting pregnant varies with size and location of fibroid(s). Best to consult with gyn or fertility specialist to give you a more accurate prognosis taking the whole picture into account (age, semen analysis, tubal status, duration of fertility, fertility treatment history, etc). A 6cm fibroid can affect fertility depending on location. ...Read more

39yo with intramural posterior fibroids, largest vs 2 adj fibroids 9 cm max diameter. Recommendations? No longer having children, unbearable symptoms

Time to grow & go: Fibroids, if left alone, will continue to grow and exacerbate your already "unbearable" symptoms. You need to talk to a GYN MD about surgical removal of the fibroids alone (myomectomy) or the uterus itself containing the fibroids.(hysterectomy). ...Read more
