I recently received an email from a concerned husband regarding his Wife’s fibroid tumors and her fertility. I thought I would address that topic today.
Many many women can and do get pregnant and carry a pregnancy full term with fibroid tumors. Fertility with fibroids is dependent on the size, the number and the location of the tumors. Obviously the greater the number, and the larger in size the greater the incidence of infertility or miscarriage.
Also, location is vitally important. Tumors that are deep in the intramural area of the uterus or those impinging on the endometrial cavity can and often will produce miscarriage.
It is very important that fibroids be removed as soon as possible……
This is why my philosophy after 12 years of female surgery still remains….
Do not wait and see.
