It is well acknowledged that fibroids are detrimental to IVF results and should be removed.
Uterine fibroids may impair a woman’s capacity to carry a baby to term and fertility. This will be determined mostly by the kind of myoma, its extent, and its impact on the uterine cavity.

- Deformation or modification of the uterine cavity.
- Changes in uterine contractility.
- Changes in blood flow and vascularization.

In Vitro Fertilization and Myomas
Not every fibroid is removed before reproductive therapy, but fibroids are often removed in the following circumstances:
- When they have an effect on the uterine cavity.
- When they are rather large.
As a result, the expert must assess the issue individually, determining the kind of myoma the lady has, its size, quantity, and if
