Is It Possible To Get Pregnant If You Have Fibroids?

According to VeryWellHealth, a woman can conceive even if she has fibroids. However, pregnancy hormones may make the fibroids enlarge and having fibroids increases the odds of a complicated pregnancy.

Fibroids can also lead to pain during pregnancy. However, not all treatment choices are safe for pregnant women. Birth control cannot be used to treat fibroids if you conceive, and some over-the-counter supplements and medications are not safe to take during the period of pregnancy or while breastfeeding. 

During pregnancy, the normal treatment plan for fibroid pain includes bed rest and hydration.

While over-the-counter pain relievers (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are often used for the treatment of fibroid pain, these medicines can be detrimental to a fetus. If you are pregnant, you should only take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in adherence to a doctor's instructions.

Some pregnant women may need prescription pain medication. In rare circumstances, it is possible to get fibroids removed through surgery during the first half of pregnancy.
