    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I found out early this week that I miscarried due to a large, grapefruit size fibroid located behind my uterus. I have to get rid of the fibroid in hopes of having a sucessful pregnancy. I do not want to have surgery, are there other options, such as herbs or medication I can take?
