Fibroids and Pregnancy
Pregnancy is possible even if there are fibroids. Dr. Alberto Sirven, Obstetrician & Gynecologist with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, affirms everything depends on the size and location of them. They wouldn’t necessarily cause miscarriage, but they tend to cause contractions, preterm labor and increase risk factors of those conditions.
There are multiple treatment options. Hysterectomy is the last option, the expert says. Fibroids also can cause infertility.
