  • They are quite common in women and don't necessarily mean a pregnancy is in danger. However, in later life they can get quite large and may cause problems. This happened to me in my mid-forties, and I only had to have surgery after the fibroids became large and started causing bleeding. There are other alternative treatments besides surgery, it was just my choice.

  • Thanks appreaciate ur answer. Well I just moved to orlando and now i have no medical and i am looking. so I ended up in the hospital because was bleeding which scared the crap out of me,As I sat they crying my eyes out waiting for them to tell me I had another misscarrige to my amazament they didn't. They found out i had uterine fibroids which was making me bleed. so he told me to get help for it and so they can monitor the baby but so far no luck. But I got to see the baby on the ultrasound so that made me relax abit. I told my mom i was surgery but i have to wait to give birth.
