Uterine Fibroids During Pregnancy

Wondering about uterine fibroids and if they're cancerous? Read on. We tell you how uterine fibroids can affect your pregnancy and if they're dangerous to baby.

What can I do to prevent uterine fibroids?

There’s no specific way to prevent fibroids, but don’t worry -- most fibroids are harmless and won’t need treatment.

What do other pregnant moms do when they have uterine fibroids?

“I had one with my last pregnancy. My OB told me that they’re very common and tend to grow owing to all the pregnancy hormones. Fortunately, it didn’t interfere with the pregnancy.”

"My doctor told me I had one with my second ultrasound. He told me not to freak out about it and not to go home and search on the Internet, because it shouldn’t be a big deal.”

"I have a few; the largest is three centimeters. My doctor isn’t worried at all about them. She says they aren’t a big deal at all and a lot of women have them and they’re totally fine. They might grow, but they’ll shrink after pregnancy.”
