From my findings, 20-50% of childbearing age women have uterine fibroids and about 70-80% of women above 50 years. Most women don’t even notice that they have fibroids. It’s until after pregnancy that some women will start having some additional risk factors, like more pains. The good news is that they are usually harmless and you can be treated with your fibroids easily.

Can Fibroids affect Fertility?
Most women will get pregnant naturally while having fibroids, but in some cases, some women will find it really very difficult to get pregnant in the presence of fibroid. Those who find it difficult to conceive is usually caused by the location or size of the fibroids.
Pregnant women with fibroids can have a miscarriage or preterm delivery, but the chances are not too different from those without it.
During pregnancy with fibroids, your doctor can monitor your situation and advise you on how to manage the condition because it will be risky to the fetus removing it at that time. In very few cases treatment may be needed mainly because of the size of the fibroid or the location of the fibroids.  Some pregnant with fibroids may have extra pains at the abdomen and maybe some light virginal bleeding. Doctors will most often only treat this situation with some pain killers, rest, just to manage the symptoms.
In some few cases of pregnancy, additional risky signs may show up, but from my finding, it is not common.
Fibroids will hardly cause the following complications:
 Fetus growth problems, fetal abnormalities, placental problems, heavy bleeding after delivery.
It’s very true that most pregnant women with fibroids usually give to birth through caesarean. This is caused by a sudden increase in the size of the fibroid after pregnancy.
Here is how Fibroids affect fertility.
It can negatively affect gamete movement or embryo implantation by distorting the cervix and the uterus.
It can go a long way to blocking the fallopian tubes.
It can reduce the receptivity of the linings of the uterus
Uterine fibroids found inside the uterine cavity and those that are larger than
6cm in diameter have a higher tendency of reducing conception chances.

Generally speaking, fibroids are very common health situations that can be managed, but it is very important to get a specialist to analyze your case and give you the much needed advice. From the above details in the article, you will affirm that fibroids can affect fertility to a lesser extent.
