Becoming Pregnant With Fibroids In The Uterus

If you are worried about becoming pregnant with fibroids in the uterus, then there are a number of things you can do to reduce the impact your fibroids have on your fertility. First of all, it is important to understand that the vast majority of women with fibroids do go on to have healthy pregnancies and normal deliveries, but sadly this is not always the case.

The impact of fibroids depends largely on the size and their location.

If your fibroids are very small and located high in the uterus, then the impact will be minimal. However, if fibroids are larger and located lower down then this could be an issue. Sometimes fibroids can cause blockages at the neck of the womb and at the entrance to the fallopian tubes and this can cause disruption in the passage of sperm. If the location is on the outside of the uterus, then becoming pregnant with fibroids should not be an issue. However, fibroids located under the surface of the womb can sometimes distort the interior, causing problems with implantation and even when implantation occurs, if the fibroid has caused “thinning” of the womb interior surface, then an early miscarriage could occur, very often even before the woman has realised she is pregnant.

If becoming pregnant with fibroids in the uterus seems to be causing you difficulties, you can of course seek treatment. Conventional treatment might include surgery or drug treatment, but this in itself can sometimes cause issues when trying to become pregnant. There are also natural methods to treat fibroids, and this non invasive approach is certainly worth considering, providing you have received a diagnosis from your doctor that your fibroids are not life-threatening.

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.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there
      I too have been suffering from fibroids so much so I was told I may not be able to have children haha, My daughter will turn 10 months day after tomorrow.We beat the odds. I had no real problems from them during pregnancy I was however considered high risk so you may need to see a high risk OBGYN to care for you during your pregnancy.She was wonderful , answered all my concerns and she did a lot of ultrasounds . I had one large one that may have contributed to my daughter being breech and me having to have a c-section. I don’t want to frighten you but there are several complications that could occur during pregnancy so see a specialist and trust your gut, I switched doctors at around 5 months because my first doctor was so arrogant in not addressing my concerns . If you feel your doctor does not give you the answers you need and make you feel safe and comfortable you have every right to switch to one that will. Delivery with fibroids can be dangerous because they can weaken the uterine wall causing rupture. So you should definitely be prepared to have a C-section if necessary. In the end the only thing that matters is you and your childs safety not how they arrive in the world just that you are OK.
      Take Care and I hope I helped some
      Good Luck with the Pregnancy.

      oh ps with the fibroids my doctor reccomends that I wait 1 year until I try again to get pregnant I have my fibroids monitored every 6 months. But sometimes pregnancy can kill them
      by cutting off the blood supply .

  3. QUESTION:
    Fibroids and Pregnancy?
    I am a woman – age 38 interested in getting pregnant. However I have a huge fibroid that has enlarged my uterus to 18cm . I have regular periods that last about 5 days with heavy bleeding the first 3 days due to the fibroid. The doctor has recommended a hysterectomy and says that I can’t get pregnant. He is very old and may be relying on old standards and the fact that I am single. Can my fertility be determined in whole from a sonogram especially considering that I am not sexually active and have not been trying to get pregnant ? Does a fibroid effect a woman’s ability to get pregnant or ones ability to hold on to a pregnancy ? I know a uterus stretches enough to hold multiple babies so can a uterus stretch enough to hold one baby and one large fibroid ? I was hoping to start iui or ivf now. is there any hope for me ? I know many women have fibroids and get pregnant. Please reply with your story. thanks

  4. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had fibroids during pregnancy?
    The ultrasound technician found multiple fibroids on the outside of my uterus durning my ultrasound in Dec. My doctor told me at my last appt. that the largest one is the size of a softball. I have to go in for another ultrasound the end of the month and if it has grown, it possibly will have to be surgically removed before I deliver in April. Has anyone else had one this big and what happened during your last trimester. I know everyone is different but I’m just curious. This large fibriod has been causing me discomfort and pain for the last 3 months.

    • ANSWER:
      I feel for you! I too have fibroid tumor growth, but on the inside of my uterus. During my gall bladder surgery they tried to investigate further, only to discover it was inside my uterus forcing me to hang on until the end of my pregnancy to decide what to do.

      The pain is very uncomfortable, and initially they found it because I was in so much pain that it was presenting as a ruptured appendix! So far, there hasn’t been anything besides having a warm bath or relaxing which has eased the discomfort for me. Even a warm cloth is nice to aid in some of the discomforts.

      Gently massaging the area could also help you in the meantime.

      Wishing you all the best, and try to relax as much as possible. 🙂 It’s almost over!
