My fibroid uterusis 5.3cm with myomas in anterior wall and the ovaries are normal, what does that mean?
You have a fibroid!: Anyone can get a uterine fibroid, which is an overgrowth of muscle cells in the shape of a ball. Like moles on the skin, they come in different sizes/shapes; RARELY cancerous. You only need surgery if you have symptoms like pain/pressure/incontinence/bleeding/bloating. Size/location don't matter. Lupron (leuprolide) or embolization are ways to control w/out surgery.

What can I do about the pain from an endometrial implant? It is located in the outter muscle (rectus sheath) in the lrq.
Hormonal suppression: Continuous use of birth control pills can cause regression of endometrial implants; Lupron is extremely effective in shrinking /causing regression of endometrial implants, as is the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. Surgery would be an option if the lesion is easily identifiable, but without hormonal suppression, endometriosis can recur since hormone production stimulates it's production. ...Read more

My uterus contains a 6cm fibroid in the posterior myometrium. Does this mean it is inside the uterus - or in the wall of the uterus?
Not enough info ...: The myometrium is the muscular wall of the uterus so most or all of the fibroid is in the wall. Posterior means the back wall of your uterus as opposed to the front.

No: In an anterior repair the tissue that normally supports the bladder/anterior wall of the vagina is pulled back in to the midline to rebuild the support. Since tissue that has stretched out is brought in from the sides, it does not make the vagina bigger. If anything, it makes it smaller. Hope this helps. ...Read more
If I have a fibroid of 22mm on the back wall of the uterus and it is making the uterus slightly heart shaped will this affect a pregnancy?
Probably not: A fibroid's effect on fertility is a long standing debate in gynecology. This is a relatively small fibroid and unless it is impinging and/or protruding into the uterine cavity, it will probably not effect a pregnancy. Pregnancy will, however, usually lead to increase in size of the fibroid due to the rise in estrogen that occurs. Fibroids respond to elevation in estrogen levels by growing. ...Read more
