    Hi Jessica. Are your fibroids causing any problems such as heavy bleeding or bladder issues? If not or the problems are minor, you may want to just watch and wait. If bleeding is a problem, there are hormonal and non-hormonal meds to reduce the bleeding. If you want to go the surgical route, small fibroids can be removed via hysteroscopy and large ones via myomectomy if you have a surgeon with the right skills. This would allow you to keep your uterus and its lifelong non-reproductive functions (anatomical, skeletal, hormonal, sexual).
