Fibroids: when should they be removed to improve in vitro fertilization success?
Uterine fibroids are extremely common smooth muscle tumors found in women of reproductive age. Over 75% of women will develop fibroids prior to menopause. A continued challenge is determining when fibroids are problematic and involved in the etiology of infertility, rather than an incidental finding. Fibroids are classified based on their size and location within the uterus (1). Fibroids that are intracavitary (i.e., entirely within the uterine lumen) or that project into the cavity and significantly distort its shape have been clearly associated with infertility.
