In brief: Yes

Fibroids can be a cause of fertility problems.
They rarely may prevent conception altogether. More commonly they distort the uterus and contribute to repeated miscarriages.

In brief: Yes

Fibroids can affect pregnancy is they protrude into the uterine cavity.
They may take up part of the surface to which the embryo attaches.
