If you are aware that you have fibroids and are wanting to have a baby, it is only natural to worry about the risks of pregnancy with fibroids. There is no doubt that fibroids can cause problems with conception, but the good news is that most women manage to go on to have successful pregnancies and healthy babies despite having fibroids.
However, there is no denying that problems can occur and it therefore makes complete sense to try to minimize the impact of your fibroids on a pregnancy.
The risks of pregnancy with fibroids relate to both becoming pregnant and during pregnancy itself. Women who have fibroids can sometimes have problems becoming pregnant in the first place and can have longer labors, experience miscarriages and other problems.
Fibroids can prevent pregnancy by blocking the entrance to the cervix and sometimes the fallopian tubes. This blocks the path for sperm, meaning that it cannot reach the egg. Sometimes, fibroids which are located under the womb surface can cause t interior to become distended which can prevent implantation of a fertilized egg, thus causing a miscarriage even before the woman realizes that she is pregnant. These types of fibroids can also cause miscarriages after implantation as sometimes the womb lining has been stretched to such an extent that the fertilized egg cannot get a good enough “hold”.
If you are not yet pregnant and you have received a diagnosis from your doctor that your fibroids are not dangerous, you may wish to try out natural ways of management to minimize the risks of pregnancy with fibroids. Conventional treatment, such as surgery, is also an option but this can bring problems of its own, such as the formation of scar tissue and the inevitable recovery time.
