Uterine fibroids: their effects on fertility

What are Uterine Fibroids?

Uterine Fibroids are very common benign tumors that can cause fertility problems in women, depending on their location and size.

Fibroids are very common benign tumors located in the uterus and consist of muscle tissue, which affect between two to four women in ten. The symptoms and treatment depend on their size and location. In some cases, it will not be necessary to intervene surgically but in others, it will be recommended to eliminate them by surgery in order to stop the symptoms and allow pregnancy.

The presence of fibroids increases with age and varies by ethnicity. It is most common among African women, they are present for a large majority of them.

Main types of Uterine Fibroids

There are three types of fibroids: those found outside the uterus (Subserosal), those located in the wall of the uterus (Intramural) and those in the uterine cavity (Submucosal). The latter generate a greater number of symptoms because, being in contact with the endometrium, they can cause menstrual alterations (heavy periods or losses outside the cycle) that can be derived to anemia.

Submucosal fibroids can also prevent pregnancy because they can sometimes make it difficult to implant the embryo and cause spontaneous abortions. For this reason and also because of the annoyances they cause, it is always recommended to remove them when they have been diagnosed, especially among women who wish to have a child.

Minimally invasive surgery

The submucosal fibroids are easily extracted by minimally invasive surgery. The intervention is done vaginally, by means of a hysteroscopy. This is an intervention that does not require hospitalization.

In any case, the actions to be applied for each woman will depend on the opinion of the gynecologist and its symptoms.
