I've had fibroids almost all of my adult life. They are small and basically 'dot' the outside of my uterus. My ob/gyn never saw them as threatening, just annoying. I gave birth (by c-section) to a big beautiful boy in 1996, and during the surgery my doc removed a larger size fibroid, just because he saw it and said it would be very easy to remove. I've always been told that the fibroids I have pose no threat to conceiving because they are not blocking anythhing.

I hop that is the case with you. Best of luck. I hope I've been of some help!


P.S. I try not to read too much about these things..it makes me even more crazy. I know it's hard. Just talk to your doc and try to take things as they come.

Welcome to the board, I am so sorry for your loss. I am not sure about fibroid tumors but my mom, and aunts have had some fibroids removed. Is this a possiblity? Good luck on your ttc journey. ((Crystal))
