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?

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.

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.

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.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?

Hi Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.

I was just told I have some fibroids - could this be the reason?
