HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Fibroid is not a contraindication for ivf. A contraindication is a reason that a procedure cannot be done or a medication cannot be used.

IVF can still be done in persons with fibroids. A study was done comparing women with and without fibroids, it found that there was no significant difference between groups.

If your doctor believes you are a candidate for the procedure then you should consider it.

I hope this helps
