The cause of fibroids is not really known. Like a mole on the hand, it is a growth which just happens. It is commoner in older women. Fibroids are quite slow growing so, if they have been removed, it would take a few years for them to grow back. If you are struggling to fall pregnant, it may be useful to see a fertility expert.
