hello,according to the ultrasound report,u have fibroid.But do u have the following symptoms;abdominal pain which is cyclical (comes at a particular time related to ur menses),excessive menstrual bleeding,abdominal swelling? if yes,then the fibroid has to be operated.if u don't have them, then it's a symptomatic and shld be left alone.Note that fibroid can cause Infertility though not in all patients.You can even get pregnant with a fibroid and have safe delivery. Also,fibroid can have adverse effect on an established pregnancy.Having said all this,the management of fibroid is individualized meaning it's special for each patient involved based on if patient has no child yet,has completed her family,has infertility etc etc.see ur gynaecologiat to take a decision.I have seen women with fibroid bn advised to complete their family early .good luck.
