Uterine fibroid
An_242216 posted:
I am 27 years old .i have 2 subserous fibroid. one is located on the top (5cm).and one in the posterior wall of uterus (4cm). i have never I am trying for baby.i have no symptoms of fibroid. my periods are regular and I have checked my LH surge by ovulation kits and I have gotten LH surge every month. But I don't have conceive. I heard subserous fibroid causes often block the fallopian tube or tube does not receive egg from ovary .my doctor has given me HSG .there is no block in any tube. So, does fibroid itself interfere conception or any other problem ? please give me advice.
David K Walmer, MD, PhD responded:
The relationship between fibroids and fertility seems to correlate with how close they are to the endometrial (uterine) cavity. There is no evidence to suggest that subserosal fibroids should prevent you from conceiving. You and your doctor should probably be looking for another reason that you are not having success. Good luck!
