Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

During the pregnancy, there will be increased blood flow to the uterus... hence there will growth of fibroid, pain and red degeneration of fibroid... The ideal time if you want to undergo surgery during pregnancy is at 2nd trimester... any drug during pregnancy is not good, that too in early gestation, organogenesis takes place, hence doctor have advised to stop the drugs... but during pregnancy it wont have much problems, during delivery , it may cause hemorrhage, LSCS with myomectomy is better,...
hope i have answered your question...

Take care...
