Can Fibroids Prevent Pregnancy?

Do you have fibroids and are you considering starting a family? If this is the case you may be asking yourself the question, “can fibroids prevent pregnancy?” The last thing you want is to go through months trying for a family, only to find that you cannot conceive and that you could have taken action beforehand to maximize your chances of becoming pregnant.

Fibroids can affect pregnancy, but this is not always the case. Most women with fibroids will become pregnant normally and have a standard pregnancy without complications. However, some will find that despite months of trying, they cannot become pregnant and further investigation will indeed implicate their fibroids as being the cause.

There are specific and obvious circumstances where fibroids can affect pregnancy and one rather obvious answer to the question “can fibroids prevent pregnancy” and that is, yes, where they are causing obstruction. By this, I mean that if your fibroids are located close to the cervix or at the end of the fallopian tubes, they can prevent the passage of sperm and thus prevent fertilization. The larger the fibroids, the more likely they are to cause blockage. However, even smaller fibroids can cause problems when they are located in the “wrong” place.

Fibroids can also cause problems when they are located just under the womb lining (subserosal). These types can cause distortion of the uterine cavity and sometimes cause a very early miscarriage, often before the woman realizes she is pregnant.

It is also worth mentioning that in a significant proportion of cases of “unexplained fertility” where a woman has fibroids, even though there is no apparent link, when fibroids are treated, many go on to conceive naturally.

Fibroids are a condition which respond very well to natural remedies and they are an ideal condition to treat because as they are so rarely life-threatening. It makes complete sense to try out a natural treatment for fibroids before resorting to surgery or any of the hormonal drugs which can cause their own side effects. This is particularly important if you are wondering, “can fibroids prevent pregnancy” as the peace of mind of knowing you do not have fibroids is well worth the effort.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had fibroids that hid the ultrasound image of the fetus?
    I’ve had 2 miscarriages already, so I was all ready to accept that at 9 weeks, with no fetus visible on ultrasound that I was sure to be told the to expect a third miscarriage. But my doctor said that even though the yolk sac was empty, it was possible that large fibroids could be obscuring the image of the fetus. Somehow. I don’t know. Now I have to wait another week for another image. He didn’t think taking more HCG levels would help clear things up. I’m really frustrated with this roller coaster ride. I had high HCG levels in the beginning and I feel very pregnant. But that doesn’t count for much, I suppose. I saw the scan and it looked like a black empty oval.

    • ANSWER:
      I had lot of fibroids inside my uterus and I had a surgery to remove them. After 22 months of that surgery I got pregnant but at the same time the fibroids grew again, even bigger in size. Now I’m 24 weeks pregnant. I’m not having a lot of problem other then a huge tummy and some minor uncomfortableness.
      Doctors tried to detect my pregnancy through ultrasound when I was 6 weeks pregnant but she couldn’t see anything other then fibroids. She also tried vaginal ultrasound, still she could see nothing. The fibroids were so big that the hid the tiny yolk. She gave me blood test to be confirmed about the pregnancy and told me to wait 2 more weeks to get the yolk picture.
      After 2 weeks doctors could see the yolk at the upper side of the uterus, the lower part of the uterus was full of fibroids.
      I’m too careful about the pregnancy as its really risky. I’m hoping that I can give birth of the baby without any big problem. I don’t know yet what the doctor is going to do with my uterus when I’ll have the surgery to give birth of the baby.

    Is it possible for uterine fibroids and pregnancy to get confused on ultrasound?

  3. QUESTION:
    MRI guided Ultrasound surgery for uterine fibroids?
    Has anyone had the mri guided ultrasound surgery for fibroids? Im currently weighing out my options and wondered what others had to say about this procedure. Also was pregnancy successful once this procedure took place, if so, how long did it take to conceive after the surgery?

    • ANSWER:
      if you are serious about getting pregnant you must completely avoid any kind of surgical procedures. There are a number of natural options for uterine fibroid treatment which provide permanent cure. All surgical procedures with the exception of hysterectomy provide only temporary relief from the problem. This is because medical science is yet to idenitfy the root cause of fibroids. Surgery merely removes the fibroid tumors and not its root cause.

      There are a number alternative methods of treatment for uterine fibroids which systematically work to eliminate each and every probable cause of fibroids.
