Fibroid and pregnancy

Hi Dr. I have a small 1cm calcified fibroid confirmed on an ultrasound. I would like to fall pregnant soon.
Is this possible?
What precautions should i take?
Will this fibroid dissappear?
Your advise would be appreciated.

The fibroid will stay there but it is very small and should not affect the pregnancy.

Best wishes

Most women with fibroids have no more trouble becoming pregnant than women who do not have fibroids, and their risk of a bad pregnancy outcome is no higher. Fibroids that block one or both of the fallopian tubes may prevent sperm from fertilizing an egg. Fibroids that fill the uterine cavity may block implantation of a newly fertilized egg. Fibroids-especially those located in the cavity of the uterus-may increase the chance of a miscarriage or may cause a woman to go into labor before her due date (premature labor). Fibroids may also increase the chance that the baby is not positioned to come out headfirst. This can increase the need for cesarean section. Rarely, fibroids can cause complications of pregnancy called placental abruption and postpartum hemorrhage. Some fibroids grow during pregnancy, but some remain the same size and others shrink.
