Thanks for the query

The fibroids are benign tumors that means that they are non-cancerous. Many studies have been conducted on complications of fibroid during pregnancy however a very minor cases develop some risks due to fibroid. These included Pain, early miscarriages, breech or malpositioning and subsequently cesarean delivery. But these complication are also related to size and location of the fibroids. Therefore it is recommended to have regular follow ups to you gynecologist/obstetrician for prevention of any possible complication
