Fibroids during pregnancy

In the second trimester, fibroids—a benign mass of muscle fiber within the uterine wall, or occasionally attached to it—can become problematic. Increased levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone during pregnancy encourage them to grow along with the uterus.
In some circumstances, the rapid growth of the fibroid causes feelings of pressure, discomfort, or pain. Fibroids may increase a woman’s risk of miscarriage, preterm birth, or having a baby in the breech position which usually resolves the problem. Fibroids that do not cause discomfort do not require treatment.
The fibroid will not usually affect the developing baby, but if a large fibroid is positioned low down in the uterus or near to the cervix it can prevent the baby from descending into the pelvis, and a cesarean delivery will be necessary.
Once the baby is born and the uterus shrinks, the fibroids will also usually shrink to their pre-pregnancy size.
