How does the myomectomy procedure affect fertility?

Your doctor will tell you more about this surgery’s outcome during your first appointment, including the possible effect it will have on your fertility.

Fertility is maintained after this procedure. If the fibroids were the reason for infertility, the patient will now have higher chances of achieving pregnancy.

If the patient gets pregnant following this surgery, the child will most probably be delivered through caesarian section. This method is preferred because the incision performed during the surgery might lead to complications during a normal delivery.
