Pregnancy Fibroids are extremely .mon and affect many women of childbearing age. Indeed, most of us go through our lives oblivious to the fact that they may be there are they often have no effect of our fertility or impact on our day to day lives. However, there are situations whereby fibroids can cause fertility problems. This can be either due to their location or size. Sometimes there is no apparent reason why fertility should be disrupted but in a number of cases, when fibroids are removed, a pregnancy will ensue. In respect of IVF and fibroids, then it is usually wise to firstly consider if it is likely to be fibroids which are causing the fertility problems or whether there is another underlying cause. If your fibroids are located on the outside of the uterus, it is far less likely to be a problem than if they are located inside. Even if it is discovered that your fibroids are within the uterus but not causing infertility, some doctors will re.mend that they are removed to give yourself the best chance of IVF success. There are reports that the drugs given during the IVF cycle can stimulate fibroids, causing further enlargement, although some doctors will perform IVF, and fibroids seem to have little effect on the out.e but it is very much the "not knowing" which prompts many women to have treatment. One of the drawbacks of this is that your uterus will need time to settle down and recover before the IVF cycle begins but this needs to be balanced against the potential increased chance of success. One option to consider is taking measures to shrink your fibroids naturally prior to treatment. By controlling your diet and taking steps to detoxify and improve your overall health, you may be able to significantly reduce the size of fibroids. So, summing up, each case is different and although IVF and fibroids may work for some, you must be guided by your doctor, taking a second opinion if you have doubts. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
