Fibroids – benign tumors of the uterus. They are very common in reproductive age women with a higher prevalence in #blackwomen ☑️Differences in genetic factors, diet, lifestyle, psychosocial stress & environmental exposures between black & white women may contribute to the #healthdisparity ☑️Fibroids can make the uterus bigger resulting in common symptoms like irregular, heavy periods, painful periods, painful urination.⁣ ❓Can fibroids effect fertility?⁣ ✅Depends on where they are located. Expert opinion, based on limited data have recommended that fibroids that distort the uterine cavity’s should be removed prior to attempting pregnancy or pursuing fertility treatment. ⁣ ❓Can non-surgical options for fibroids enhance fertility? ⁣ ✅No. While, non-surgical options for neutralizing symptomatic fibroids can be effective in properly selected patients, non-surgical options are not recommended in those with cavity distorting (or large >5cm) fibroids trying to conceive. #uterinearteryembolization is a common non-surgical treatment for those with symptomatic fibroids, however it is not recommended for those interested in future childbearing. ⁣ ❓What types of #surgery are available? ⁣ The preferred surgical approach to patients who have #fertility affecting fibroids is #myomectomy. Myomectomy is surgical removal of the fibroid(s). Some patients have one large fibroid while others have multiple (see picture).⁣ Myomectomy can be performed 2️⃣ways:⁣ 🅰️"From below” (through the cervix without any incisions, e.g #hysteroscopy) ⁣ 🅱️“From above” (with abdominal incision, e.g #abdominalmyomectomy or via a minimal invasive approach e.g #laparoscopicmyomectomy. ⁣ ❓Which approach is right for you? ⁣ ✅Depends on the #fibroids, location, size, and skill/comfort of the surgeon. There is tremendous variation in #fibroid presentation so its important to talk to your #fertilitydoctor about the approach that works best for you. She/he will review all of the available options and recommend an approach that satisfies your #goals ⁣ #fibroidsurgery #fibroidsawareness #fibroidssuck #infertility #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcwarrior #ttcjourney #myomectomysurgery
