Question: Hi, I’m 41 years old and have never had a child. We are trying, and I just learned I have two fibroids – “3.8 x 4.2 x 3.8 cm in the posterior uterine body fibroid towards the right” and a “smaller 1/0 x .0.8 x 1.5 cm fibroid along the anterior uterine fundal region which is exophytic in appearance.” It is hard to tell from this report’s description whether the fibroids are in my uterus or inside the wall of the uterus. Can you tell? Would these need to be removed before getting pregnant?

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Both the fibroids that you have are likely to be intramural (inside the wall of uterus). These are not distorting the endometrium hence there are no symptoms like excessive bleeding or cramps.
Such fibroids do not usually pose a problem in conception but the removal may be needed if the repeated trials for conception fail and all other hormonal reports are normal and both the tubes are patent.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Thank you. Would a posterior fibroid be likely to cause back pain during pregnancy since fibroids usually grow during pregnancy. I already have chronic low back pain due to spondylolithesis (my two vertebrae tend to slip), and Im wondering if that may be a reason to remove as well. I currently notice pain during intercourse along with back pain flare ups. Have wondered if there could be a role played by fibroid depending on location.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The fibroids you have are not large enough to cause pressure symptoms or a back pain. The low back pain due to slipped disc may get aggravated during pregnancy due further posture problems associated with pregnancy.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.

Hello, I am 26 weeks pregnant and I have fibroids. I have started to notice blood in my urian. I have had test done for UTI and kidney Stones, both came back that i did not have neither. I was wondering if my fibroids can cause blood to be in the urian?

I have had two recent occasions of urinating myself. I am only 45. I feel the need to go to the bathroom and make a mental note to find a bathroom only to find that it becomes incredibly urgent and I can't move. I then wet myself and I can even be in public . I was just told I have some fibroids - could this be the reason?

I have been having pain in the left abdomen near left side rib cage. I have been having periodic pain in the same location for the past year. I have had MRIs' CAT scans, endoscopy and colonoscopy. The only thing they could find is polyps in the stomach and irritation in the stomach. I have been on Dexilent for a few weeks and thought it was getting better. Then I had the worst bout yet. extreme abdomen pain with 101 fever. I went to the E.R.

and they gave me Cipro and pain relievers and sent me home. I have been having pain now on the left side especially the left side of my head and down the side of my throatand my left eye is really red. No one seems to have answers. I have been to many specialists in Baylor In Houston and all have given up on an answer. I am extremely nausated and having a hard time eating and the pain seems to be radiating down towards the lower left side. 6 months before I had this problem I had my uterus removed due to several fibroids growing larger and painful. Do you have any suggestions of any test that could be ran or what this might be? Thanks so much!

Hi, Ny daughter Paige is now 4, and has had a massive splenomegaly since birth that doctors, paediatricins cannot find a cause for. She had a chronic cough for 3 years, and mucous poos which a natural therapist has succesfullt treated as leaky bowel . She has recently had chronic bleeding nose and her cuts and sores are healing slowly and looking inflamed. her spleen is 21cm and she has occasional hepatomegaly. She has been tested for everything including parasitic involvement. All her siblings are healthy. serology shows that she has had both CMV and Epstein-barr, but the haemotologist says that it is definately not the cause of the biggest spleen he has seen . Ultrasounds show an engorged spleen with no fibroid tissue and no portal flow froblems. She has always had pancytopenia, but lately her white cells have been much lower than usual. She has no autoimmune disorders, thalassemia, TB, Kala azar, or any of the thousand things tested for. She needs help. Thankyou for your time
