I had a fibroid removed in June. I dont have a success story yet. We also have male infertilty. I think having it removed can definaltly increase your chances of conceiving though. Good luck :)

I had a myomectomyfor a large fibroid back in 2006.  SO far, no luck.  But I was told I HAD to get it removed if I wanted to keep a pregnancy.. it was a real biggun!

I had a huge fibriod removed 1 yr ago, and I have been PG twice since. I MC'd them both, but that has nothing to do w/ the fibriod. Also we used IVF to get PG both times.

I had two fibroids removed. One was on the outside wall of my uterus and the other was in the wall lining.  I got pg 3 months later but that one didn't work out (ectopic) and then again about 2 months after that. My son is now 7 months old.

Well, this Friday will be 15 weeks after my removal. I was able to start trying just about 1 week ago.  i have to wait til Sunday to see if I conceived.  I am so sick of the waiting game. Planning out every month really stinks! I guess from all my research...7 months seems to be the lucky conception month after fibroids. So, I guess if it didn't work this time, I am that much closer to getting pregnant the next month.

Hello, its me again! Okay I waited my 3 month post op surgery. after that the first month of trying I had a test where they look in my uterus with a scope...all looked good. The next month I had a HSG ( tube dye test) After that I was told my right tube got blocked. ( I heard after pelvic surgery adhesions can do that) Now i was thinking my left tube is open so now it will take twice as long to get pregnant. My Dr. did not seem worried & said I can still get pregnant. Well, after that test my menstraul never came. Come to find out I got pregnant. So, now my doctor thinks that HSG cleared that tube & I got pregnant that month. I am nine weeks pregnant & the heartbeat is perfect 144 bpm on week 6 day 1. I can't wait for my 12 week appointment. So guys...I have answered my own question. It took me 6 months to get pregnant after fibroid removal. 3 mths of trying. Makesure you get that HSG, if their is some slight obstruction....it will blow it out!!!!!
I am very excited. baby dust to all  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

| had fibroids removed in 2010,8 large ones and ive been wanting another child since my son was 2yrs old,hes now 18,im just so sad that it was not possible for me,im now 45 and a lot of people tell me at least i have one child,but they dont understand that im an only child and was and still is a lonely life and i dont get on with my extended family,my heart hurts everytime i hear someone is pregnant and i so wanted a daughter,because i didnt get on with my mother and never knew my father,its even made me suicidal and hate my body,thinking im less than a woman,why can other people plan how much kids and when they will have them and it all works out for them,life is so unfair,i hope all is well for you

You are lucky to have one thank God every day for that. You have had the experience once. I am 30 and never will I have the experience of knowing how it feel to carry my own child to have that special bond with someone. I have fibroids that can't be removed so I have to have my uterus removed. Just be thankful for what you have some people dont even have that. I am blessed  in many ways, but as I am typing I cant stop crying because. I know that I will never have that opportunity and it hurts. I just have to keep remembering that my life is not mine it belongs to God and what ever he has planned for me has to be a lot better that what my mind is telling me.

Hi,
   My wife had fibroid in the uterus. It was removed by the doctor in the year 2008. After that we tried for baby but it did not happen. In 2012, september, the doctor said that she had polycystic ovary. She was treated with hormone and metformin. Recently she conceived and is well. I think, fibroids may affect but in not all women. It is advisable to get treated, to prevent malignancy of the fibroid.

Am 28 I had fibroids for 5yrs of my life & they had grown really really big when I had them removed last year in August I was told to get pregnant asap because they would come back this time bigger & worser which would lead to the removal of my uterus, I felt a heavy weight over my shoulders & as months passed by nothing was happening. Its been 13 months since I had my surgery and am now 8 weeks pregnant what 2 miracle! :-)

I had a fibroid removed in March, but my dr said that I need to wait for a year minimum. How long do you need to wait? What did your doctor say?
