Fibroids and conception

I am 36 years old and have starting trying to convieve. I have two girls ages 10 and 13. My doctor says that I had fibroids when I had my mirena taken out. I already knew because they were seen during previous pregnancies on the ultrasounds. How will this effect me getting pregnant? What should I do?

Joel Bernstien, MD responded:
Hey there. Not all fibroids are created equal. Many many many women have fibroids that have no effect on a pregnancy. It depends on the size and more importantly the location of the fibroids. If you want a worthwhile answer to your question, the doctor who has looked at your sonogram can better give you beneficial information.

My doctor did not do a sonogram. I was having pains so I went to have my mirena taken out and she said that she could feel a couple of tumors and feels like I have 4 or 5. One she said was on the back side of my uterus not sure if its on the external or internal wall. I need to go back and have some additional tests done I guess?
Thanks for the info
