Our expert says:
Fibroids usally grow slowly, but their growth can speed up during pregnancy. Sometimes fibroids can degenerate in pregnancy and cause pain. This is usually treated with painkillers and anti-inflammatories. If the fibroid is very low in the uterus it might obstruct delivery and necessitate a caesarean section. This will be assessed closer to the time of delivery.
