Fibroids can affect pregnancy, but it depends on location and size of fibroids.

Large fibroids close to endometrial cavity can affect pregnancy.

If the fibroid is smaller in size or lies on external surface of uterus, then it won't affect pregnancy.

A sonography can help to predict effect of fibroid on pregnancy.
