Fibroids
Gynae confirmed i have about 4 fibroids, one 4 cm big. Said i wont fall pregnant until i have them removed. Am only 26. I would like to have a baby when i turn 30. Should i be worried? Could this make me infertile? Should i maybe try having a baby a bit earlier than 30? Pls advise im not too sure I really understand what this means

It is a possibility that you will have difficulty falling pregnant or that you may miscarry if you have a number of large fibroids. You can have them surgically removed.
