Fibroids in the womb
I am 6 weeks pregnant and my gynae did a sonar to check my progress. He detected a number of fibroids in my womb as well. Two are actually quite large. He mentioned that I have nothing to worry about now but I am still worried. My last gynae did not mention these fibroids and I had a full check up (sonar/pap/urine/blood tests) in november 2005. Do you think it will affect my pregnancy in any way?

Fibroids are common and most of the time do not give problems. Sit tight.
