Did you know that by about 45 years old, nearly every women will have little fibroids, about 2-3 millimetres in their uterus?

These are round hard swellings of your uterine muscle and are often the cause of heavy periods.

Although reasonably uncommon in your pre-pregnancy years, if you have a diagnosis of fibroids there are some factors for you to consider when you are trying for a baby.

In this podcast we chat about:

  • What symptoms are caused by fibroids
  • How fibroids are diagnosed
  • How fibroids can impact getting pregnant
  • What to do if you have fibroids and you are trying to get pregnant
  • What impact they have during your pregnancy
  • What is the treatment plan for fibroids


Why did we start this podcast? Well we think there is a barrier for women to get EXPERT pregnancy info that is practical, relatable and easy to understand.

Dr Pat has helped 1000s of women have their babies and through this we know that this kind of information given to a woman at the right time can totally change her experience of pregnancy and birth.
