Generally, fibroids are harmless and the symptoms they cause can be painful and uncomfortable, but not life-threatening.Many women can and do conceive despite their fibroids. Indeed, problems arise in the minority rather than the majority of women. However, when problems do occur they can be severe, ranging from miscarriage to infertility.Whether or not you can get pregnant with fibroids depends on a number of factors. Some of which are easy to determine and some of which are not. If you fibroids are large, or if they are located close to the cervix or the entrance to the fallopian tubes, your chances of conception may be compromised. Large fibroids can distort the uterine cavity making implantation impossible, or cause an early miscarriage even before a pregnancy is confirmed.Some women asking "Can I get pregnant with fibroids?" may find that becoming pregnant is not the only issue. Once pregnant, fibroids can cause problems in a number of ways. For example, some fibroids will grow during pregnancy due to the influence of the raised levels of hormones. This can then mean that the baby and the fibroid are effectively "competing" for nourishment and this can sometimes (albeit rarely) cause a miscarriage. In addition, large fibroids can sometimes result in premature delivery, but thankfully the pregnancy is often at a stage where this does not cause complications. Details on this link.
