Women with fibroid disorder

In some women experience uterine fibroids disorder which is quite common in women. The uterine fibroids are non- cancerous growth in the uterus of the woman which affects the pregnancy. It decreases fertility due to following factors like location, size and fibroids. It has the power to alter the flow of the blood from arteries into the uterus as well as can change the shape of the uterus. So when women undergo the IVF treatment containing fibroids affects the success rate.

What exactly does the study say?

The study was done by considering 86 women who were undergoing IVF treatment in which 43 were experiencing fibroids and 43 were not. The success rate of women getting pregnant was quite similar. Women having more than one fibroid are having a similar flow of blood in the arteries in the uterus as compared to the women who were not having fibroids. But yes the clinical pregnancy rate of the women getting pregnant was having fewer rates of women having fibroids due to change in the shape of the uterus. After the observation of both the groups we come across that women with fibroids and women without fibroids are having similar success rates until fibroids change the shape of the uterus. Then we have seen that the success rate becomes less as compared to women without fibroids.
