I’d like to have children. Can fibroids be a problem?

Some uterine fibroids may cause reproduction-related problems too, such as infertility and multiple miscarriages, or obstetrical issues. In the case in point, the specific position of the fibroid in the uterus may sometimes interfere with pregnancy in a number of ways. For example, if the fibroid is too close to the placenta, it may hinder the growth of the foetus, resulting in lower birth weight, while a fibroid that is closer to the lower part of the uterus may interfere with delivery, making a Caesarean section more probable.
