Fibroids seen in 20 to 40 percent of women may be the cause of infertility, depending on their location or size. Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist Op. Dr. Algül Anıl Yılanlıoğlu gave information about fibroids.
Kiss. Dr. Algül Anıl Yılanlıoğlu “Myomas are located in the inner layer of the uterus according to their localization and can cause infertility, which we call infertility. Those located in the inner musculature of the uterus, called intramural myoma, can reach very large sizes that take up space. Finally, they are under the outer layer of the uterus and are called subserous myoma and they can also be space-consuming and very large fibroids. In terms of symptoms, submucous fibroids cause infertility, while intramural myomas are space-occupying lesions, which can cause abdominal swelling and pressure on adjacent tissues. If intramural fibroids press on the bladder in front, there is a complaint of frequent urination and inability to empty the urine completely. Again, they can cause complaints such as constipation and gas, even if they are pressing back to the rectum. Subserous myomas have the ability to take up space and make pressure as a mass, ”he said.
