8 Multiple fibroids (laparoscopy)

This is a laparoscopic picture of a lady with infertility showing multiple (seven) good sized fibroids. Myomectomy or hysterectomy was not performed and she was treated conservatively. She became pregnant soon and had delivered a healthy baby. Mere presence of fibroids does not cause infertility.

Uterine fibroids (tumours) are found in about 20% of women of the reproductive age. While more than 50% of women with fibroids remain asymptomatic the rest would have various symptoms including serious and debilitating ones.

Hysterectomy or myomectomy has been done for years to treat fibroids, however, many other excellent treatment modalities are also available. All those issues have been discussed in this article.
