In brief: Yes

Most women with fibroids do not have problems conceiving and can have a safe and healthy pregnancy.
However, sometimes fibroids can cause significant fertility and pregnancy issues. Many women wonder if they should have surgery before conceiving. This is a very individualized decision. Please talk with your gyn or a reproductive endocrinologist. Consider a second opinion before major surgery.

In brief: Depends onwherethey

Are and how big they are.
Multiple, large fibroids can ultimately constrict the space the growing fetus needs. This increases risk for preterm birth, growth restriction. Also might result in increased discomfort in pregnancy requiring extra visits to md office. Fibroids themselves are not an indication for c-section.
