Ask the Docs: Uterine Fibroids and Fertility

On July 26, 2022, Drs. John Fratterelli and Emily Goulet hosted a Facebook live session entitled: “Uterine Fibroids and Fertility.”  

July is Fibriod awareness month. Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in or on the uterus. Fibroids can grow on the inside or outside of the uterus and can interfere with pregnancy in many ways. At the Fertility Institute of Hawaii, Dr. John Frattarelli, Dr. Anatte Karmon, and Dr. Emily Goulet have evaluated and treated many women in Hawaii and elsewhere for uterine fibroids associated with infertility.  

During this session, the following was discussed:

  • What are fibroids and how do they form?
  • How can fibroids impact fertility/pregnancy?
  • What are symptoms of fibroids?
  • What treatment options are available for fibroids if they impact fertility?
