What If I Become Pregnant And I Have Fibroids

Women who have fibroids are more likely to have problems during pregnancy and delivery. This doesn't mean there will be problems. Most women with fibroids have normal pregnancies. 

The most common problems seen in women with fibroids are:


Cesarean Section.


The risk of needing a C-section is six times greater for women with fibroids.

Breech Birth.


The Baby is not positioned well for vaginal delivery. Labour fails to progress.

Placental Abruption.


The Placenta breaks away from the wall of the uterus before delivery. When this happens, the fetus does not get enough oxygen.

Preterm Delivery.


A preterm or premature birth is a birth that takes place more than three weeks before the baby is due. In other words, a premature birth is one that occurs before the start of the 37th week of pregnancy. Normally, a pregnancy usually lasts about 40 weeks.

Talk to your Obstetrician if you have fibroids and become pregnant.

All Obstetricians have experience dealing with fibroids and pregnancy.

Most women who have fibroids and become pregnant do not need to see an OB who deals with high-risk pregnancies.

However, if you do have any element of Fibroids, and you're yet to be pregnant, its always a better option to shrink the fibroid on time before pregnancy occurs.
