Reply to "Fibroids Are Stealing Our Fertility"

I went to a doctor about three years ago and was told that i have several of them but they were really small and he didn't feel any further action needed to be taken to get rid/treat them besides putting me on birth control to stop my irradic periods and pain. I went to a doctor in june of this year and they said they didn't see any Confused but i did have several cysts that didn't appear to be fibroids but something different. I asked about having fertility problems and in both cases they assured me that i "shouldn't" have any problems, but i worry about it. When my insurance is reinstated i am going to get another opinion some where else. My best friend had a rather large fibroid removed recently on one of her ovaries (doctor said it was about the size of a grapefruit)and before her operation they told her they may have to remove the ovary but during surgery they were able to work around it without removing it. I worry about it because there was a time when i was in a relationship for five years and wasn't able to get pregnant-we didn't use birth control or any other form of protection but nothing ever took, i never had a baby. I know logically that it may take more than five years to have a baby so that doesn't necessary mean that i can't but it lingers in the back of my mind and when i see other women's stories like this woman it makes me think it even more Frown
