Experiencing incontinence but never had a baby. Had myomectomy recently to remove fibroids but still have issues. I do light weight lifting. Cause??

Hard to know: Incontinence can be caused by an anatomical defect (stress incontinence that occurs with coughing, sneezing) and may be treated surgically or may be a nerve issue (urge incontinence/overactive bladder) which may be treated medically. Both may respond to pelvic muscle exercises and voiding on a scheduled, say every 2 hours. See a specialist if this continues to bother you. ...Read more

It's been 3 month since my abdominal myomectomy. When can I do weight lifting? when can i have sex? when can i have my laser bikini hair removal done?

Ask Your Surgeon!: Your surgeon should be monitoring your progress. If you have no complications, you should be able to start progressive weight lifting. That depends upon what you were doing before the surgery and how well you are healing. If you are well healed, you should be able to start having sexual intercourse. Your surgeon will tell you when you can have the laser hair removal. ...Read more

In Dec 2016 I had a myomectomy. Jan 2017 I had a normal cycle, this month I've been bleeding for 18 days. Is this normal?

Yes: The disturbance of the endometrial and uterine lining caused the fibroids/surgery can take some time to repair itself. Be patient. However, you should also be vigilant and monitor symptoms closely. The bleeding and related symptoms should gradually improve. If this is not the case, consult with doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Does anyone at this location have plenty of experience performing hysterscopic myomectomies the traditional way versus the robotic way?

Does anyone at this location have plenty of experience 
performing hysterscopic myomectomies the traditional way versus the robotic way?

Yes: A hysteroscopic myomectomy is the best approach for submucosal fibroids < 3.5 cm located inside the cavity of the uterus. The robotic myomectomy is best for subserosal fibroids that are coming from the outer surface of the uterus. For fibroids deeply embedded in the wall of the uterus, robotic myomectomies are possible but more difficult so consider a hysterectomy if childbearing is complete. ...Read more

The slimy  stuff that appears to signal ovulation stopped for about 3 years now. Just went through myomectomy  and wondering if it will help to correc?

Probably not: The slimy stuff is probably cervical mucus. You could have several reasons for not having much. One big reason is not ovulating so check for that. The fibroids probably did not affect ovulation or mucus. See a specialist to do an exam and help check your cycles. Best wishes. ...Read more
