doctor1 MD

Hi,
The impact of the fibroid on the pregnancy depends not only on the size of the fibroid, but also on the location of the fibroid. If the fibroid happens to be close to the uterine cavity as in the submucous or intramural types, it is likely to interfere with pregnancy. If, on the other hand,...

Hi there ~

You may not have any problems during your pregnancy if you have regular check ups with your OBGYN. This is because you have a fibroid in your cervix, that you need to have more frequent checks. If everything is fine up until the end of your pregnancy, delivery may be a problem since...

I am a 22 year old female, 5'4 120 lbs. Last April I was told that I had a ruptured cyst on my left ovary and a new one on my right. I was also told i have a fibroid just below my belly button. Normally I have heavy painful periods, but the last 2 months they have been short light and painful. After this month, i stayed bloated when it ended and i have to urinate frequently. I have like a heartbeat feeling by my belly button and my lower abdomen feels crampy. I have also been burping alot and i feel full all the time. Is it just the cysts and fibroid or should i be worried?

hi doc,i will be 41 in May and i have fibroid that is as big as six months old pregnancy.i am going to undergo surgery soon and my doctor needed to know the state of my tubes since am still hoping to get married and have children someday soon, so on thursday morning i underwent an HSG test which was very painful.but the pain later went away without my taking any pain reliever later in the day. On sunday morning i started having severe pain deep in my anus connecting also deep inside my vagina .i can hardly sit down and i have general discomfort. pls is this normal and what should i do. am yet to go back to the hospital for my test result.

doctor1 MD

Hello
Thanks for your query.
HSG is a relatively simple procedure, and would not cause such severe pain and discomfort.
It is more logical to assume that the pain is due to the huge fibroid that you have.
You could take an OTC painkiller and wait for a couple of days.
Consult your doctor if the...

Hi Sandhya,
From the data provided by you, it appears you have a fairly big fibroid. Your pain can certainly be due to the fibroid.

Hi , My wife (age-27 yrs) is pregnant since 16 weeks.This is first preganacy . Previously, there was no complication . In 12 week USG report , there was suberous fibroid of 7.2*4.6 in the posterior wall of uterus , and in report of 16 week it is 9*7 cm . From 7 days , she is feeling pain in abdomen . Doctor prescribes pain killer when much pain and rest . What should we do . What precaution we should take for better . Is there any risk . I am so worry. Kindly suggest.

doctor1 MD

Hello,
The pain in abdomen that your wife is experiencing is most likely due to the degeneration of the fibroid called in medical terms as red degeneration. This occurs during pregnancy as the fibroid grows rapidly and outgrows its blood supply leading to tissue necrosis at the centre.

Hi - I have just received my scan results and would like some help to understand it please. I'm sorry but I sort of "zoned out" when the doctor went over it.

Clinical: Polymenorrhea. ? Endocervical polyp clinically.

Findings: TA and TV pelvic scans.

The anteverted uterus is normal in size measuring 7.5 x 4.9 x 4.7 cm.

There is an anterior fundal intramural fibroid measuring 4.37 x 4.2 x 4.96cm. This abuts the superior endometrium. The endometrium itself is thin and normal in texture measuring 4.9mm. Ther is an 8 x 5mm hypoechoic nodule close to the cervix suspicious for the polyp previous clinically seen.
Righ ovarian volum 5.7mls and left ovarian volume 5.1 mls. Normal follicular activity. 1.6cm complex cyst/follicle in the left ovary and a dominant 2cm simple follicle in the right ovary. No adnexal mass or free fluid.
Conclusion:
4.9x4.7cm left fundal fibroid abutting the endometrium. The is an 8x5mm nodule in the region of the cervix ? Small polyp. Clinical correlation suggested.
Complex 1.6cm follicle in the left ovary. This could reflect a haemorrhagic follicle.

Should I be worried and what comes next? I'm only 46.

Thank you

doctor1 MD

Hi,
Thanks for the query.
According to your ultrasound report you are having a fibroid and polyp sizes as mentioned.
These can be the causes for your menstrual irregularity.
The hemorrhagic follicle can be due to rupturing of ovarian follicle on process of releasing ovum.
That will subside soon...

Fibroid causes pressure symptoms and causes pain in some nerves supplying and surrounding the uterine area. If its persistent and is becoming unbearable go and consult your treating doctor.

I ve been feeling like a burning sensation on my lower belly area and also very little burning sensation where I urinate. I had a urine test yesterday but the results show traces of blood (that I cannot see with naked eyes) and no trace of urinary tract infection. I also have fibroids for years and the last time the gynocologists checked them (4 years ago) he sais they were very small and should not worry about them. I ve also heard that some drugs might cause the blood in the urine and the new medication I ve been taking is Lipitor and because it caused me stomach pain and burning my doctor asked that I stop it (which I did 2 nights ago. What do you think the cause of the blood might be?
