Womb Fibroids May Cause Miscarriage
Women with fibroids that distort the cavity of their womb are almost three times more likely to suffer miscarriage in the second trimester of pregnancy than those without fibroids, according to new research published in the journal Human Reproduction. .The study, on women who have suffered three or more miscarriages in a row, is the first firm evidence that fibroids are associated with recurrent miscarriage. Removing fibroids that distort the womb cavity could lead to a future successful pregnancy, doubling the live birth rate, the findings showed.
