Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for help.
You and your wife must discuss this matter with her gynecologist. Her physician knows the size of the fibroid, its location, her overall health and changes of conceiving and carrying the baby to term without removal of the fibroid.
You must remember that each case is individual and one cannot make an assumption based on what others have reported.
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus. They develop from the smooth muscular tissue of the uterus.
Fibroids usually don't interfere with conception and pregnancy. However, it's possible that fibroids could cause infertility or pregnancy loss. Submucosal fibroids may prevent implantation and growth of an embryo. In such cases, doctors often recommend removing these fibroids before attempting pregnancy or if you've had multiple miscarriages. Rarely, fibroids can distort or block your fallopian tubes, or interfere with the passage of sperm from your cervix to your fallopian tubes.
