I was diagnosed with 2 fibroids 2 years ago but that is as far as i have gotten. I know they are each around 1.5-2cms. I was diagnosed with them at 26 while investing why i was in extreme pain in some sex positions. I assumed children were FAR in the future so the doctor and i left it as a bridge to cross if we get there. At 29 I am in the position to plan another baby and am seeing my OBGYN tomorrow to review my pelvic pain situation and discuss TTC 

I had a healthy pregnancy at 24 and a 2nd pregnancy ending in stillbirth at 25 and no fibroids were seen on my uterus then. Luckily i have seen the same OBGYN since 2007 and hes excellent so he has a complete picture of my situation.

Girl, I feel your pain. I had very heavy bleeding , horrible cramps that seemed to be getting worse and worse ( bleeding went from 4 days to 7,cycles jumped from  every 28 days to 24-30 days) . I was diagnosed with 3 fibroids this year. 1 sub mucosal, 1 intermural , and the other I can’t remember. Due to the fact that I was ttc with no success, my OB suggested I just remove the submucosal fibroid and leave the others. She did present me with the option of removing all 3 but then i wouldn’t be able to start trying for 1year +.  after research i decided to have a hystersopy/ myectomy . I was glad I did. Turned out the sub mucosal fibroid was between my fallopian tubes and larger then expected.  the surgery was suppose to be 1 hr, it took a lot longer. IThe periods after my surgery were horrible.. But I’ve read that usually they lighten up afterwards. I got pregnant after 3 cycles, so I’m not sure about that.

I’m 14 weeks pregnant  and I’ve got 2 fibroids still which suck but haven’t been given me too much problems. I may need a c section if they grow but my OB don’t seem to be excessively worried at this point.   I always ask the tech if I’m the worst theyve seen, and their like honey  please,  definitely seen worse. 

My friend had fibroids, opted to naturally shrink ( drinking some herbal teas)  then but got pregnant in the midst of that process.  Hers grew with the baby ( she was huge for 3 months) . she was pretty much on bed rest most of her pregnancy. Delivered a healthy baby in March via c section and bonus got her fibroids removed too. 

Fibroids suck but definitely explore all your options. good luck.
