Removal of Fibroids
Removal of Fibroids (Myomectomy)
One in three women can have fibroids at the same point of their lifetime. It mostly occurs in women from the age of thirty to fifty. In the African-Caribbean country, women develop this more frequently. The women who are suffering from the problem of overweight, are prone to it because obesity increases the level of estrogen in the body. The women with children have a lower risk than others.
What are fibroids?
In the uterus of a woman, there are some abnormal growths which are called fibroids. Sometimes, the sizes of tumors become large and it is the reason behind the heavy flow of periods and abdominal pain. They may not cause any symptoms in other cases. These are major, noncancerous, or benign. They made turn cancerous rarely in less than 0.26%. Other names of the fibroids are myomas, leiomyomas, fibromas, and uterine myomas. According to the Office of Woman’s Health, 80% of women over fifty have them. Some people never come to know about it as they do not have any symptoms.
What are the types of fibroids?
In women, different fibroids different develop. Its classification depends on its location. These include the followings:
- The most common type of fibroid is intramural fibroids. You will get to see these in the muscular wall of the uterus. It can stretch the womb by growing larger.
- On the outside of the uterus, the subserosal fibroids occur. After its sufficient growth, it makes the womb bigger from one side.
- Subserosal tumors can sometimes have a thin base that can support tumors. These are pedunculated fibroids.
- Sometimes fibroids enter the uterine cavity, then known as submucosal fibroids. These are not that common.
Causes and signs of fibroids
Till now, the reason for the development of fibroids is not clear, but it can cause because of some influences. This includes-
- The ovaries produce hormones like progesterone and estrogen. During every menstrual cycle, these hormones handle the uterine lining development and also stimulate the fibroids to grow.
- The problem with fibroids is that they can spread through genes. If one of your family members has a history of fibroids, you are most likely to have it.
- Other than these, during pregnancy the chance of developing fibroids increases because the body produces progesterone and estrogen in more amounts at this time.
Symptoms of fibroids
Symptoms depend on the size, number, and location of fibroids.
For example, some fibroids cause problems in conceiving, and other cause heavy menstrual bleeding. If one is going through menopause and the size of the tumor is small. It will not show any symptoms. It happens due to a level drop of progesterone and estrogen after menopause which causes the stimulation of growth of the fibroid.
The symptoms are:
- Heavy bleeding during the period.
- Pain in the pelvic area.
- Increased cramps during menstruation and urination get increased.
- Pain during intercourse.
- Pressure in the lower abdomen and its enlargement occurs.
Diagnosis and treatment for fibroid
If you face the mentioned symptoms, you need to consult a gynecologist. There are some processes to confirm if you have this problem or not. It includes an ultrasound preferably, transvaginal and 3 D, and pelvic MRI. The treatment of fibroids is based on the age of the patient and the size of the fibroids.
Home remedies including yoga, acupuncture, massage, application of heat on cramps are helpful in this matter. Try to avoid high-calorie food and meats and consume green vegetables, cold-water fish, and green tea and according to the diet, chart suggested by your dietician.
There is a limitation of the treatment of fibroids by medication. The gonadotropin-releasing hormone can decrease the level of secretion of progesterone and estrogen and help in reducing the size temporarily
Otherwise, doctors also can remove large growth by surgery. Surgery is the cornerstone of treatment. The doctor makes an incision in the abdomen and gets access to the uterus. It helps to remove the fibroids. Sometimes, they also make small cuts and insert the camera with the surgical tool known as laparoscopy or key-hole surgery.
There is also a noninvasive surgical process. By this procedure, the doctor does an ultrasound and gets to see the condition of the uterus. They destroy the fibroids by the high-frequency ultrasonic energy. There is also another nonsurgical option, which is uterine artery embolization. Non-invasive options have limitations especially not appropriate if planning a future pregnancy.
Pregnancy with fibroid
During early pregnancy, fibroids in the uterus are not uncommon. Most of the women do not feel any kind of difference due to the presence of fibroids that. Most of the time, these are harmless. According to the review, women may face complications from fibroids during pregnancy. During this time, the would-be mothers feel pain in the abdomen due to fibroids. To avoid the risk and have a healthy pregnancy, you should consult with gynecologists. If the fibroids are large she can face miscarriage or preterm delivery due to the complication of fibroids.
If the fibroids don’t show symptoms, there is no need to treat them. After menopause, they can disappear without treatment. Sometimes, the doctors recommend medication to help the problem. But the majority of symptomatic fibroids require a surgical procedure.

Do you know the success rate of pregnancy with the IUI procedures ranges from 15% to 20% per cycle? Yes, this is true. IUI, which is Intrauterine insemination, is a kind of artificial insemination that helps in treating infertility issues. This a quick process in which the pre-selected sperm is directly injected into your uterus or womb.
IUI or Intrauterine insemination is a less invasive procedure when compared to IVF or In vitro fertilization. Couples get many benefits from this procedure as the chances of pregnancy increase a lot because of IUI.
The reasons for an unsuccessful implantation are very uncommon and rare as well. Blastocyst provides a greater chance of becoming pregnant therefore the procedure is handled properly as well.
Before jumping to the immediate question first let’s have a small brief of what is blastocyst transfer. Blastocyst transfer is the transfer of embryos that have achieved a higher stage of development.
Normally in natural pregnancy, when a period cycle starts, an egg gets matured in the ovaries. When it becomes 18-20 mm then it is released at that time. After a physical relationship between a couple, the sperms fertilize this mature egg in the fallopian tube. Once the fertilization occurs, this fertilized egg converts into an embryo and sticks to the uterus that causes pregnancy.
If we talk about the term “Secondary Infertility” it generally refers to a situation when a woman is going through certain infertility issues even after carrying a baby already in her life. Moreover, this type of Infertility results in almost 50 percent of total infertility cases in women around the world. This is most common in couples who think of having a baby in their late 30s and 40s.
Egg freezing, medically known as human oocyte cryopreservation. It is an effective procedure allows the woman to go against the biological clock. It enables women to postpone pregnancy to a later date. In this phenomenon, eggs extracted, frozen and stored. The success rate of the procedure depends on the age of the woman and ranges from approximately 14% to 30%.
