Uterine fibroids are very common benign, smooth muscle cell tumors that affect 25% to 40% of reproductive-age women. Multiple studies have found there is an association between fibroids and infertility, especially when fibroids are large, in the uterine cavity, or compress the cavity. There are several explanations as to why uterine fibroids may reduce fertility:
*Fibroids change the position of the cervix (the vaginal opening to the womb) and may affect the number of sperm that can travel through the cervix
*Changes in the shape of the uterus can interfere with sperm movement
*Blockage of the fallopian tubes by the fibroids
*Affecting the blood flow to the uterine cavity where the embryo would implant.
*Changes in the uterine muscle may prevent movement of the sperm or the embryo
Dr. Sharara at the Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine can help determine if fibroids might be hampering your ability to conceive. Treatment options vary depending upon the age of the patient, the severity of the symptoms and the size of the tumor(s).
