Infertility

Fibroid removal surgery

My new doctor found a 3 cm fibroid between by cervix and uterus which might have lead to infertility. Has anyone gone through this? 

Just looking out for similar experiences. I am very new to this and freaking out.

    I had a ten cm fibroid when I got pregnant in 2019. I had no idea and it never affected me. I ended up miscarrying that pregnancy but my doctor said it was not related to the fibroid and I could have carried full term despite the size. I ended up getting it removed shortly after the miscarriage, with no scar tissue and have not had any since. Originally I was told with future pregnancies I may need a c section, but because everything healed well I was able to give birth naturally to my daughter in 2023 after a successful round of IVF. Despite experiencing infertility, all of my doctors and specialists assured me that the fibroid was not a factor. I also know of other women who have had fibroids that did not affect their fertility. I know this is a long road and the journey can be scary but stay positive and good luck :)
