|Pregnancy and fibroids |
In most cases, fibroids do not interfere with pregnancy and treatment is not necessary. By and large they do not hinder the process of getting pregnant or with your bodily changes during pregnancy, but fibroids can rarely cause infertility. Some of the ways fibroids can cause infertility are by:
- blocking your fallopian tubes,
- interfering with Sperm movement and
- preventing implantation and growth of an Embryo.
A more common complication of fibroids in pregnancy is localized pain, usually between the first and second trimesters. This can be easily treated with pain relievers.
