Can I Get Pregnant With Fibroids In The Uterus?

“Can I get pregnant with fibroids?” is a question often asked by women who are aware that they have these common growths, but who are wanting to start a family. Generally, fibroids are harmless and the symptoms they cause can be painful and uncomfortable, but not life-threatening.

Many women can and do conceive despite their fibroids. Indeed, problems arise in the minority rather than the majority of women. However, when problems do occur they can be severe, ranging from miscarriage to infertility.

Whether or not you can get pregnant with fibroids depends on a number of factors. Some of which are easy to determine and some of which are not. If you fibroids are large, or if they are located close to the cervix or the entrance to the fallopian tubes, your chances of conception may be compromised. Large fibroids can distort the uterine cavity making implantation impossible, or cause an early miscarriage even before a pregnancy is confirmed.

Some women asking “Can I get pregnant with fibroids?” may find that becoming pregnant is not the only issue. Once pregnant, fibroids can cause problems in a number of ways. For example, some fibroids will grow during pregnancy due to the influence of the raised levels of hormones. This can then mean that the baby and the fibroid are effectively “competing” for nourishment and this can sometimes (albeit rarely) cause a miscarriage. In addition, large fibroids can sometimes result in premature delivery, but thankfully the pregnancy is often at a stage where this does not cause complications.

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:
    Fibroid tumor pushing uterus to one side?
    What do you do if you have a fibroid tumor pushing uterus to one side, so therefore sperm can’t find its way to the egg? I have been examing and my tubes and everything looks good to get pregnant.

    • ANSWER:
      “There are 3 general locations for fibroids:
      Subserosal – on the outside surface of the uterus

      Intramural – within the muscular wall of the uterus

      Submucous – bulging in to the uterine cavity ”

      “The only type that is supposed to have a large impact on reproductive function (unless they are large or numerous) is the submucous type that pushes in to the uterine cavity. These are much less common than the other 2 types of fibroids. Because of their location inside the uterine cavity, submucous fibroids can cause infertility problems or miscarriages.”

      “The decision to actively treat fibroids can only be made on an individual basis. Most women require no treatment at all. If the tumors are small and cause no problems, most physicians will simply schedule an examination every six months to make sure the fibroids aren’t growing.

      Reasons for Treatment
      Your doctor may decide to treat fibroids if they start growing rapidly, cause serious pain or discomfort, or may interfere with your ability to become pregnant”


      Option : ” Myomectomy. Understandably, the prospect of any type of gynecologic surgery is upsetting to a woman who hopes to become pregnant. Yet continued presence of fibroids may in itself make pregnancy impossible. For women faced with this dilemma, a myomectomy is the procedure of choice.

      A myomectomy is the surgical removal of each tumor separately without damaging or disturbing the uterus. The procedure is successful in almost all women who choose to have it performed. Generally, it doesn’t matter how numerous or how big the fibroids are or where they are located.”

      “Physicians are starting to evaluate ways to treat fibroid tumors without surgery. A few have begun using lasers to remove them or reduce the size of fibroid tumors. Several scientific studies are underway to test a new drug treatment that shrinks fibroids. Most of the women who have used the drug had their fibroids shrink to half their starting size. The drug is leuprolide acetate (Lupron), a synthetic form of the naturally occurring substance known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone (also called GnRH).”

      If it’s pushing your uterus to the side, wouldn’t it push a baby also? I guess that’s something to ask the doctor.

  2. QUESTION:
    My wife has been diagnosed to have “fibroid uterus tumor”, do you feel this to be a immediate surgery need?
    She is 53 years of age and has suffered some pain and discomfort. X-ray shows signs of abnoramlity. Also X-ray (catscan) shows some growth affecting her appendits. What are your opinon? Should she get another opinion?

    • ANSWER:
      Are you apprehensive about surgery being the option for fibroid treatment? In case the symptoms of fibroids are severe and unbearable , hysterectomy or complete removal of the womb can give her relief. However if the symptoms are not so bad and she can put up with them for a year or so with your doctors prior permission she can try out natural uterine fibroid treatment.

  3. QUESTION:
    I need info about a possible fibroid tumor on my uterus…
    I had an MRI on my hip about three weeks ago and I went to my doctor yesterday to discuss the results. She told me that the test also showed a possible fibroid tumor on my uterus, A few questions: Can they tell just from the MRI that it is fibroid as opposed to malignant? Also, what is the treatment for a fibroid tumor? ANY info you can share with me will be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      the only way to tell if it is malignant(cancerous) or benign(non-cancerous) is to do a biopsy. I’m so sorry. I hope it’s malignant and you are ok! good luck!

  4. QUESTION:
    I have a fibroid tumor in my uterus..I have spotting red and brown is this from the fibroid or?
    I was recommended to have a hysterectomy a yr ago I was also told after the ob put me on provera then naproxen after I nearly bled to death from him and fired him to seek emergency medical care immediately…… was a single mom in the middle of a divorce and missed so much work from the ob and court that I nearly lost my job… I couldnt get back to another ob its been a yr… Now I have this intermittent bleeding of red then brown…. I was also told I my uterus bladder and rectum are sitting on my pelvic floor… I just want to know what the chances of cancer after a yr with a fibroid would b… He had also made the comment of lever 3 b4 cancer… now I am worried I do have another appt with a OB outside my network….

    • ANSWER:
      When it is polypoid or sub mucous fibroid intermenstural bleeding occurs.If the polypus is large the bleeding is profuse and almost continuous. If it is infected the discharge may be with pus and with offensive smell. Red is fresh bleeding and the brown is late bleeding. Since you have already being diagnosed as having fibroid you need not worry, other wise we have to think of possibility of co-incident uterine cancer. Better to have a checkup again.

  5. QUESTION:
    What are my choices? Doctors found a FIBROID TUMOR in my uterus.?
    Will I have to have a hysterectomy? Is there something else I can do?And could it kill me if I don’t have surgery?

    • ANSWER:
      If there are no symptoms and they are not bothering you, they are left alone- otherwise surgery is done. Surgery can either involve a myomectomy in which they are removed, or a hysterectomy. A newer treatment called uterine fibroid embolization can also be done, in which the fibroid is shrunk or destroyed by blocking off the artery that supplies blood to them. You can read more here
