Uterine Fibroids and Pregnancy – Getting Pregnant With Fibroids

If you are thinking about having a baby, you are no doubt excited about the prospect of becoming a parent. However, if you have fibroids, you may be wondering about the connection between fibroids and pregnancy.

Getting pregnant with fibroids is often not as big an issue as many women imagine it to be. Indeed, most women go on to have normal conceptions, pregnancies and deliveries. However, there are potential problems at each step and it is important that you are aware of what the issues are.

If you are worried about fibroids and pregnancy, one of the possible problems which can occur is a blockage of the fallopian tube or cervix. Even small fibroids which just happen to develop at the entrance of either of these structures can block the passage of sperm, causing infertility. Another possible problem relates to submucosal fibroids. If larger fibroids develop just beneath the womb lining, they can distort the uterine cavity and, in some cases, stop implantation of a fertilized egg.

Later in pregnancy, occasionally larger fibroids can cause the baby to be born a little early, but this is not usually a problem. If fibroids are situated lower down in the uterus, the can obstruct delivery, so a cesarean may be required.

Fibroids are undoubtedly a sign that something is wrong within the body. Fibroids and pregnancy are not the ideal mix, therefore if you are aware that you have fibroids before conception, it makes perfect sense to try to get rid of them if at all possible as a fibroid-free pregnancy is best for both mother and baby. Surgery and drug treatments are not always the best treatment for fibroids and with the prospect of a forthcoming pregnancy, neither of these options are suitable.

Many women get their bodies ready for pregnancy by eating healthier, doing more exercise, having health checks and perhaps taking appropriate vitamin and mineral supplements. Taking steps to shrink your fibroids to minimize the possibility of fibroids having any possible negative impact makes perfect sense.

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. In the case of pregnancy, most women want to ensure that they are giving themselves and their baby the best possible chances and naturally, a fibroid-free environment is best for both.

    • ANSWER:
      I have 3 fibroids and I have a 2 year old and and am 35 weeks with the second one. I did have a miscarriage before – but miscarriages before 12 weeks with the first one, although heartbreaking, are not unusual. Good luck, take it easy and take you pregnancy symptoms as a sign that everything is progressing well.

  3. QUESTION:
    Is there any hope for a baby?
    I am a 34 year old woman with no kids, but I desperately want them. Last year I had 2 large submucosal fibroids removed from my uterus (one the size of an apple, and one the size of a golf-ball) by myomectomy. After the surgery, my doctor told me not to put off having children any longer, so my boyfriend and I decided to start trying. We have only been trying a few months, but so far no luck. When I went back for my checkup recently, the doctor did an ultrasound and found 3 more fibroids growing already. He told me he didn’t want to do another surgery to remove them unless it was absolutely necessary. So now I am very concerned because the two I had removed last year grew rapidly. Everything I have read about trying to conceive with submucosal fibroids (those that grow within the uterine wall) has been very grim. Right now I feel very, very hopeless. There are days that I cry because I want a baby so bad, and all of my friends are having them left and right. I will be heart broken if I never get to experience having a baby. Does anyone know of anything I could do to help increase my chances of getting pregnant? Has anyone else had a successful pregnancy while having specifically submucosal fibroids? If so, how long did it take to get pregnant?

    Btw, I have considered seeing an infertility specialist but my insurance doesn’t cover it and I imagine it is very expensive. Not sure I can afford to do that out of pocket. :(

  4. QUESTION:
    Chance of conceiving again with these results?
    I had an AMH blood test done that was 1.1. The doctor said that wasn’t too bad considering I am 39. She said 1.4 would be perfect. I do ovulate regular and have normal cycles.

    My husbands sperm count, motility, etc. all came back great. However, his morphology was only 7% normal. He is otherwise healthy.

    Two days ago I had an HSG (which was following up on an ultrasound). My doctor wanted to make sure my tubes were clear because I had a miscarriage about 6 weeks ago. Anyway, the tubes were fine, but I do have 5 submucosal fibroids. My regular ob/gyn said it wasn’t anything to worry about and that removing them can cause too much scarring to sustain a pregnancy. But the RE said I should have them removed. I guess I don’t know who to believe.

    I know that individually these issues aren’t necesarily an huge problem. But, is it possible to conceive again with a healthy pregnancy? Was it just a fluke that I got pregnant once? We haven’t used any kind of contraception in 9 years and this was the first pregnancy!
