In brief: Alternative idea

Fibroids are tissue growth that affect the uterus.
They are extremely common and present in up to 50% of women (i've seen as high as 70% quoted). They commonly cause abnormal bleeding and a hysteroscopic myomectomy is done to remove fibroids that protrude into the cavity of the uterus as an alternative to hysterecomty. It's done through the cervix with minimal anesthesia. A nice little surgery.

Submucosal fibroids, those within the uterine lining are the fibroids removed my hysteroscopic myomectomy. They may cause heavy or irregular bleeing, which leads to hysteroscopic myomectomy.
