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?
Thanks for your Reply!
