Question: I had a myometomy in 2011 to remove 7 fibroids. Fast forward to 2019 I’m 4-5 weeks pregnant with multiple large fibroids. I’m afraid to continue this pregnancy and need a medical opinion. I know I have at least two fibroids the size of a grapefruit I can feel them poking out from my uterus. I’m so scared.

Brief Answer:
Depends on size of fibroids.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Termination of pregnancy due to fibroids is advisable only if they are considerably large in size and your family is complete. This can be diagnosed only after an ultrasound scan. It is best to consult your gynecologist and get an ultrasound scan done to consider the further options regarding termination or continuation of pregnancy.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
