Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

Your fibroid is large in size. But since it is outside the uterus, it is better to go directly for IVF.

If you dont conceive by IVF, then go for laparoscopic myomectomy to remove fibroid.

As of now no need of laparoscopy.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
