first of all you should not have been on lupron that long. 3 months at a time is best 6 months at the most. i just want to make sure your doctor has been doing bone density scans and all that stuff. since you are single are you going to do donor sperm? you will need to be off lupron for a while and re-regulate your period before you can move on to getting pg. are the fibroids bad? could surgery wait?
sorry for the questions but it is best to try to get pg right after you heal and are "all cleaned out" so that is the only reason i would suggest to wait for surgery but only if it is a possibility.
