Pregnancy After Fibroid Removal

There are a number of surgical procedures for fibroids and it is only natural that if you are looking at undergoing such a procedure, you consider the likelihood of pregnancy after fibroid removal if you are still hoping to start a family.

The two most common surgical procedures are myectomy and embolization.

Myectomy

This is a popular option and preferred by many women as unlike a hysterectomy, it does not require the removal of the uterus. It is usually performed by making a small incision along the bikini line and then the fibroids are removed. The operation usually lasts between 3-4 hours and is a reasonable option for women who still want to have a family. The side effects include the risk of infection (as with any surgery) and a recurrence in fibroids. Myectomy should always be carried out by a specialist surgeon as there is evidence to suggest that fertility is least affected when a myectomy is undertaken by a surgeon with number of these procedures under his belt. It would appear to be the presence of scar tissue that can interfere with implantation, so the number of fibroids which have been removed and their severity will impact upon the chances of pregnancy after fibroid removal.

Embolization

This is one of the most successful procedures available to treat fibroids. Small particles of plastic are injected directly into the blood vessels, causing the fibroids to shrink, wither and die off. The procedure itself is relatively quick, although fibroid shrinkage can take several months. As the root cause of the fibroids has not been treated, new fibroids could grow. Pregnancy after fibroid removal by embolization is possible, although there is no data available from large studies which can give an accurate indication of how likely this might be. There is anecdotal evidence that some women may not be able to conceive after the procedure but of course, we do not know how many of these women would have been able to conceive with fibroids present.

If you haven’t yet made a decision about whether or not to go ahead with surgery, it could be worth considering using natural non-invasive treatment to shrink your fibroids. If you are prepared to make significant dietary and lifestyle changes, you could see tangible results within a couple of months.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Anyone had a successful pregnancy with fibroid?
    doctor said I have a small fibroid which is termed at uterine fibroid… I am 17 weeks and so scared the fibroid might cause me problems later in my pregnancy…. I wanna hear successful stories. Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      I have a small fibroid that I was diagnose with my 3rd son which was a 2 1/2 years ago. I am currently 32 weeks pregnant with my 4th son and I haven’t had any problems. Don’t put so much thought to it. There are a lot of women that have small fibroids and most of the time they cause no problems. Good luck with ur pregnancy.

  2. QUESTION:
    Have you had a uterine fibroid related to pregnancy that you can feel through your abdomen?
    I just had a baby and while still in the hospital, the day after giving birth, I felt a nodule the size of a quarter on the top of my uterus. The doctor felt it and said he thinks it may be a uterine fibroid and will check it at my 6 week post baby check up because by that time, it would most likely shrink due to decreasing levels of pregnancy hormones. I am pretty scared at the moment. I did not have fibroids with my first child.

    • ANSWER:
      I am currently pregnant and have 3 fibroids, one that is about 8 cm at the top of my uterus. Recently my belly got bigger and I can no longer feel the fibroid through my skin. A quarter sized fibroid is nothing to worry about. They grow during pregnancy because you produce more hormones and tend to shrink after you give birth. They are non-cancerous and you shouldn’t worry — your baby is fine, be thankful.

  3. QUESTION:
    How can a fibroid affect the pregnancy?
    After my first ultrasound at 5 weeks pregnancy they found a little amniotic sac in my uterus and also two fibroid ( one aprox. 4x4x4 and the other aprox. 2x2x2). How are they going to interfere with my preganancy? Am I safe?

    • ANSWER:
      Complications during pregnancy due to fibroids is rare. Please talk to your doctor regarding your concerns. You can get information on the net, but your doctor can address your specific situation. Remember that many women have fibroids, and the far majority do not experience any complications in pregnancy. My best wishes to you…..

      “Can a fibroid tumor harm the baby?
      Probably not. Even if you do experience symptoms, they most likely won’t affect the baby. However, your risk of miscarriage and premature delivery does increase slightly if you have fibroids. They occasionally cause the baby to be in an abnormal position for delivery. They can also stall labor, or, if they’re located in or near the cervical opening, they may block the baby’s passage. All of these (rather rare) problems can increase the likelihood of cesarean delivery.”

      “Most women with fibroids have no more trouble becoming pregnant than women who do not have fibroids, and their risk of a bad pregnancy outcome is no higher.”
