Hello doctor,

I am 35-yearold female and do not have children. I have two intramural fibroids of 2.5 cm in size, putting pressure on the cavity.

Doctor suggested laparoscopic myomectomy along with the removal of chocolate cysts on the ovary. I want a second opinion.

Is surgery necessary? How long should I wait to conceive after surgery?

Is reduction of the size of tumor necessary before surgery?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your history and understood your concern.

It is better to go for surgery because it will increase the chances of pregnancy, and it is better to reduce the size of the tumor because it causes pressure on the uterine cavity.

You can wait for 3 months after surgery to conceive again.

Thank you doctor,

I am already 35 years old. Can I conceive at this age after the surgeries of cysts and fibroids?
