Many women trying to conceive have discovered that the obstacle wasn’t age, egg or partner related, but benign tumors that were preventing pregnancy.
Many women trying to conceive have discovered that the obstacle wasn’t age, egg or partner related… the culprit was benign tumors in the uterus that were preventing pregnancy. Fibroids don’t always announce themselves with noticeable symptoms. And in this case, what you don’t know, can hurt you. Even small fibroid growths can affect your ability to have children. So if you are having trouble conceiving, make sure the cause isn’t fibroid-related. Imaging studies can tell you whether or not your womb is fibroid free. If you do have fibroids, your options for treatment are less-invasive and simpler than you think. Ask about fibroid embolization. And make sure you get information on this non-surgical alternative. There’s not only a wealth of medical insight, you can hear real women, with the same issues, talk about the difference it made to their lives… and their ability to have children.fertility
