Fibroid Uterus

Fibroid Uterus

Uterine fibroids are the commonest benign growth occurring in women of reproductive age. The incidence of fibroid in reproductive age women is 20-50%.

Almost 5-10% women with infertility have fibroids. The impact of fibroids and their management in the context of infertility may be considered depending on fibroid location and size.

The main risk factors for fibroids are advancing age, nulliparity and race. Lifestyle risk factors include high red
meat intake, alcohol consumption and vitamin D deficiency. Diets rich in dairy, fruit and green vegetables reduce the risk of fibroid development. Parity is protective.

How are Fibroids treated?

Many women are unaware that they have fibroids, as they do not always cause symptom. You may experience heavy bleeding, prolonged bleeding, pain in abdomen and difficulty in getting pregnant.

The diagnosis of fibroid can be done by pelvic examination, USG, hysteroscopy and MRI.

In women with submucous fibroids, a hysteroscopic myomectomy should be performed when indicated. In case of subserosal fibroid there are no evidence that purely subserosal fibroid can impact fertility so no surgery required usually. For intramural fibroid laparoscopic approach or hysteroscopic approach can be used, depending on the extent of the fibroids.
