    I had one when I was 22, my fibroid was the size of a cantalope. Because of my age for treatment I was put on the Depo shot. I am now 31 and had my last shot Oct.2010. I've been ttc since and nothing has happened. I do have a positive opk every month. Has anyone been able to conceive after this surgery? I also have a tilted uterus .

    David K Walmer, MD, PhD responded:
    Myomectomies result in the formation of scar tissue in the pelvis about 80% of the time. Sometimes that scar tissue can interfere with the natural functioning of the ovaries and fallopian tubes. The best way to find out is to do a laparoscopy (placing a small telescope through your navel). The scar tissue can often be removed at the same time. It is probably time to take a look. Good luck!

    I had one in 2008 and now my menstration has been irregular ever since. I want to get pregnant. How do I go about the laparoscopy and what does it take?

    I am 23 years old and was on Depo for almost 2 years. My last shot of Depo was Oct 2010 as well. My husband and I have been TTC since August 2011. I have had regular periods since October 2011. Still not pregnant. It takes time to recover from depo. That may be some of your problems.
