Q: Doctor hi, am three month pregnant, I had ultra sound where the doctor to noted uterine fibroid measured 2.56*1.7cm. Will it affect my baby, am i going to take medication during pregnancy?
A: Fibroids can co-exist with pregnancy in which case pregnancy may be normal or associated with breech pregnancy, pre-term delivery (delivery of pre-mature babies) etc. However, once a woman registers in a good antenatal center under a good obstetrician, these issues will be anticipated and addressed promptly. Please be sure that you are seeing an obstetrician who will help you during this pregnancy. Many patients with fibroids in pregnancy have normal pregnancies and deliveries.
Some women find out for the first time that they have fibroids when they get pregnant. Most of them cause no problems during pregnancy. However, some of them may act up.
Fibroids during pregnancy are managed conservatively…that is they are not managed aggressively…
