Causes of Female Infertility -Fibroids and Polyps
KIC- The Surrogacy and Infertility Super-Specialty Clinic
These growths (Fibromas, Myomas and Leiomyoma’s) are benign tumours made up of thread-like tissue that clumps together to form masses. Usually found inside the uterus, they affect implantation of the fertilized embryo. Symptoms associated with fibroids – especially if they are large – include heavy bleeding, pain and abdominal pressure.
Treatment Options for Fibroids and Polyps
Medication: Although medications can shrink fibroids in some cases, the result is not permanent. Instead, they can only temporarily reduce symptoms, delay surgery or shrink the fibroid enough to allow for a less invasive surgical procedure.
Surgery: Required for removal of fibroids and polyps- if they are large enough and are affecting fertilization and/or embryo implantation.
