Our expert says:
This will entirely depend on the size and position of the fibroid and not all fibroids need to be removed. However from your description it appears that indeed this may be necessary and is generally a very safe and minor procedure depending on which approach is going to be taken. If the fibroid is very close to the lining it can be removed transvaginally by a Hysteroscope and healing is usually very good. However if the fibroid is somewhat more deep seated it may be necessary to do an open procedure, which has a longer recovery period. Perhaps you should look for a second opinion by visiting another fertility specialist and this can give you perhaps a more accurate perspective.
