Can I remove my Myoma as when giving birth?
I'm 24 weeks pregnant now and I have 6 cm (tennis ball) Myoma. The doctor told me I will have C-section when I give birth because the baby can't pass through because of the Myoma being a hindrance. I just want to know if I can remove it when giving birth or if not, when is the soonest after I give birth. Also, I want to know what are the risks on my pregnancy right now having the Myoma because I've heard its possbile I can have miscarriage or preterm labor..
Usually, a myoma will not interfere with a pregnancy; as the fact that a woman is pregnant with a myoma, means that the myoma is small. Generally, when a myoma becomes larger, the amount of menstruation increases and cramps become severe. This is especially true in the case of myoma uteri submucosa, myomas that form on the inside of the uterus. This type of myoma can cause infertility or miscarriage.
If a woman is somehow pregnant and a large myoma is present, the myoma can cause abnormalities with the position of the fetus. Normally after 30 weeks into pregnancy, the fetus is positioned head down, but if a myoma interferes, the baby can be reversed. This can be detected early using ultrasound. Although the placenta and fetus may be in normal positions, a cesarean section is done if a myoma interferes with natural birth.

what is the pathophysiology of the myoma uteri ?
does anyone know some herbal medicine to cure myoma?
just trying to help my friend,she does not want any operation.
There is no herbal medicine to cure myoma. It can only be fixed by surgery. Steroidal treatments are used sometimes, but side effects of those are unpleasant.
You will best help your friend by keeping her away from alternative medicine. It will just waste her time and money.
There are currently minimally invasive procedures to remove the myoma. (+ info

what are some ways to eliminate myoma uteri?
Removal of the fibroid(s):
This is also called myomectomy. Myomectomy, with one exception, means making an incision into the uterus and removing one or more fibroids. If the fibroid is on a stalk (pedunculated) it is not necessary to cut into the uterus to cut the stalk. Unless the myoma is on the outside surface of the uterus, the uterus is repaired, usually with sutures. One of the major differences in how a myomectomy is done involves the surgical approach to the uterus. In a laparotomy an incision is made in the abdomen to reach the uterus. The advantage of this is that large myomas can be quickly removed. The surgeon is able to feel the uterus, which is helpful in locating myomas that may be deep in the uterine wall. The ability to touch the uterus facilitates repairing the uterus. The disadvantage of a laparotomy is that it requires an abdominal incision. Most of my patients who have this procedure spend two nights in the hospital, and return to work in about four weeks.
For pictures of the each type of myomectomy see Dr. Indman's comprehensive web site: All About Myomectomy for the Removal of Uterine Fibroids (will open in new window)
Some myomas can also be removed by laparoscopy. The laparoscope is a telescope placed in the abdomen through the belly button. Other instruments are inserted through small individual incisions in the abdominal wall. Many myomas can be removed by laparoscopy; this is easier to do when the myomas are on a stalk or close to the surface. Once the fibroids are removed they are cut into pieces by one of several instruments designed for this purpose, and removed. The advantage of laparoscopic myomectomy is that it is usually done as an outpatient, and allows faster recovery than a laparotomy. One of the disadvantages is the extended time needed to remove large fibroids from the abdomen, although newer instruments are improving this. Since the surgeon cannot actually touch the uterus, it may be more difficult to detect and remove smaller myomas. In addition, if a woman plans pregnancy after her myomectomy, there is a question of whether the uterus can be repaired through the laparoscope as well as it can be by laparotomy.
Although many myomas can be removed through the laparoscope, the decision of which myomas should be removed laparoscopically and which by laparotomy depends on many factors. A woman should discuss the advantages, disadvantages, and risks of each type of surgery with a surgeon who is experienced in all treatment methods.
Destruction of the myomas:
Several procedures have been designed to treat the myomas by destroying their blood supply instead of removing them. The first procedure, called myolysis, is done through a laparoscope. In this procedure, a laser fiber, or more commonly an electrical device, is placed into the fibroid through the laparoscope, and is used to coagulate the myoma or the blood vessels feeding the myoma. The dead tissue is then gradually replaced with scar tissue. This is easier to do than a myomectomy (although it can be time consuming), and recovery is usually rapid.
There are several disadvantages to the procedure. Since no sample of the fibroid is sent to the lab, for a biopsy, in the rare case of malignancy may not be diagnosed. Frequently the the procedure causes adhesions (organs such as intestines stick to the uterus), which could cause problems later on. Most importantly, I am not aware of any controlled study comparing the outcome of this procedure with myomectomy or other treatment. As with any new procedure, there is no long term information on what will happen over time.
Uterine artery embolization, which is described below, seems to offer many advantages over myolysis.
Uterine artery embolization:
This is the newest treatment for fibroids. This procedure involves placing a small catheter into an artery in the groin and directing it to the blood supply of the fibroids. Little plugs are injected through the catheter to block these arteries. This causes the fibroids to shrink, although there may be pain for a short time afterwards requiring the use of narcotics.
Uterine artery embolization may eliminate the need for surgical treatment of myomas. As in myolysis, no samples are sent for biopsy, although the chance of malignancy in fibroids are low. It is important to seek evaluation from physicians knowledgeable in both embolization and traditional methods of treatment before deciding on treatment.

Can a myoma cause pain after sex?
A myoma is a benign tumor of smooth muscle in the wall of the uterus. Various terms are used to refer to the tumor, such as fibromyoma, myofibroma, leiomyofibroma, fibroleiomyoma, myoma, fibroma, and fibroid. Of these, fibroid is the most common term, although myoma is more accurate.
Most fibroids, even large ones, do not cause any symptoms. Indeed, most are discovered incidentally during a routine gynecological exam. Distortion of the normal abdominal wall contour due to a large tumor may also be discovered during self-exam. Patients with symptomatic fibroids typically have excessive or prolonged menses. This may sometimes cause anemia due to the large amount of bleeding. After bleeding, pressure is the second most common symptom of myomas.
Pressure on the bladder can produce urinary frequency and urgency and, occasionally, inability to urinate. Pressure on the rectum may cause constipation. In cases of extremely large fibroids, pressure on the pelvic vessels may cause edema or varicose veins in the legs. Kidney symptoms are also possible if the fibroid extends upwards.
Abdominal and pelvic pain, a feeling of heaviness in the pelvis, or pain upon intercourse are also common symptoms. The pain may be dull or sharp, but is usually intermittent. Occasionally, fibroids cause dysmenorrhea (pain during menses). Myomas may also be related with infertility, especially if the myoma distorts the cervix enough that it becomes occluded. Pregnancy causes growth in size of any preexisting myomas, potentially causing an otherwise asymptomatic myoma to become symptomatic.
I hope that this helps answer your question, however if you have a myoma, I would recommend that you consult with your doctor/gynaecologist should you have any further questions.
Good luck :) (+ info
