:Hi Shayna! Please do not rush into anything. My very respected RE wanted to do my uterine reconstructive surgery but I opted to go to the guy who developed the technique for removing uterine septums - all he does is uterine surgery - Dr. Robert Neuwirth, in Manhattan. I also would ask the high risk OBs who they would recommend for your surgery. I personally know someone who had fibroids removed and then had 2 children through IVF, though she had to be watched very carefully during pregnancy. High risk OBs - Hutson and Edersheim on E. 72nd St. I used them too. Good Luck.

I am a 24 year old who was just diagnosed with Uterine Fibroids. My OB/GYN has suggested that they try to remove them. If they do that she says I will not be able to carry a pregnancy to term because they will remove part of the uterine walls with them. I am so upset about this but I don't feel like I want to give up on having children yet. I am not sure where to go next. Should I have a second opinion? Would going to an RE help things any? I would appreciate any help!!!
