Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Recently, I have been diagnosed with uterine fibroid with submucosal extension. Following are the results: The uterus is retroverted and measured 4.2 x 3.4 x 3.4 inches. It is bulky. An intramural fibroid of 2.6 x 2.2 x 2.3 inches is also seen in the posterior wall. The fibroid is pushing the endometrial cavity anteriorly in the mid segment. What about my pregnancy?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Since the fibroid is comparatively big in size and bulging into endometrial cavity, it should be removed. Laparoscopic myomectomy is a better option. Chances of conception will be more after removal since it is posterior meaning behind uterus. If it enlarges then your uterus will also retrovert more. So, I suggest you to consult a gynecologist and preferably laparoscopic surgery may be done.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
