Considering the fact that you are HPV positive, any vaginal procedure could cause some spread of infection unless properly contained; moreover it could also be the cause of the polyps. Treatment for the fibroid is based on its extent and location. If you have completed your reproductive life, you may opt for removal of the cervix and the uterus, as you have several problems and suffer from heavy bleeding too. Please get a proper advice from a specialist after a physical evaluation. Hope your query has been clarified. Take care.
