Can Fibroids Cause Problems During Pregnancy?

If you are wondering “can fibroids cause problems during pregnancy?” then it is true that a number of issues can arise. However, most women with fibroids have a normal pregnancy with a beautiful baby at the end of it, but that’s not to say that you shouldn’t carefully consider your options before becoming pregnant.

Women who experience problems becoming pregnant or have difficult or long labors often have fibroids, as do those who experience miscarriages. Also, there is evidence to suggest that between 2-3% of infertility patients also have them.

There are a number of potential problems to a pregnancy caused by fibroids. Depending on their location, fibroids can cause blockages of the cervix or fallopian tubes which prevents the normal passage of sperm to the egg. A fibroid which is located just under the womb lining can grow to distort the uterine cavity, thus making implantation very difficult as it can thin out the lining making the sustenance of a pregnancy impossible. In this incidence, repeated early miscarriages can occur, often even before the woman knows she is pregnant.

About the author: Gail advocates using natural treatments for fibroids rather than using conventional medication or surgery as this is a workable long term solution. Conventional medication only treats the symptoms and fibroids are likely to regrow, whereas natural treatments, when used properly can eliminate the root cause by rebalancing the body and restoring overall health.

  5. QUESTION:
    Do fibroids stop conception?
    Hello

    I am worried. I have just gotten back from the hospital where I had a scan because we were trying to find out what was causing mid-cycle bleeding and a dull ache in my left hand side of abdomen. After the scan the Doctor confirmed that I had three large fibroids in my womb and now I am extremely worried that I may not be able to conceive. The Doctor suggested a Diagnostic Hysteroscopy to find out what else is up because he doesn’t believe that the fibroids are causing the bleeding. But I am extremely worried about not been able to conceive and carry a baby to term. Has anyone else had this sort of issue and been able to get pregnant? Can anyone suggest any natural remedies that may help me reduce the size of the fibroids so I don’t need to have any invasive surgery?
    @mom of 4
    Many thanks for your answer and congratulations on your 4. Did you have fibroids?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi

      Fibroids can cause problems with implantation… but…. remember… the egg would have to try to implant exactly where the fibroid is to have a complication

      Fibroids are pretty common and I know of women getting pregnant with no problems what so ever!

      Good luck!
