Myomectomy - A New Treatment Option for Uterine Fibroids

Uterine Fibroids are growths on the uterus that are non-cancerous and usually show up during childbearing years.Uterine fibroids are common and can affect fertility in many ways. They can affect ovulation, fertilization and implantation.

Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids:

- Longer than usual menstrual periods or bleeding between periods. 
- Heavier than usual menstrual periods 
- Pelvic pain or pressure 
- Inability to control urination or frequent urination 
- Constipation 
- Leg pains or backache

If you don't have any symptoms, or if your symptoms are mild, you won't need treatment. If you have more severe symptoms, there's a range of treatments available. Discuss with your doctor which treatment is most suitable for you.There are many treatment options available depending on the particular patients condition and age:

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus,usually along with the cervix.This is the most common and permanent cure of fibroids. But a big drawback of this surgery is that a woman cannot ecome pregnant or carry a baby after this surgery. This option is only considered if the fibroids are too large. 

A hysterectomy is performed by making an incision in the abdomen. Sometimes the ovaries are also removed along with the uterus and cervix. The decision to remove the ovaries depends on how close the woman is to menopause or if the ovaries are diseased.

Myomectomy is a method to remove fibroids without removing the uterus. This surgery allows the woman to bear children, but only 50% women can carry a successful pregnancy after a myomectomy. Myomectomy is performed through an incision in the abdomen with the assistance of a laparoscope or hysteroscope.

Laparoscopic MyomectomyThis is indicated when the female is young and wants to preserve her uterus. Through this keyhole surgery the myoma or the fibroid is removed. This procedure leaves no long scar, so better cosmetic results are obtained.

IVF Treatment - A New Ray of Hope For Childless Couples

The IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) method, originally referred to the 'test-tube' baby method, is a fertility treatment that gathers eggs from the ovaries of a woman and fertilized with a male sperm in a lab. The fertilized egg (embryo) is then placed back in the woman's womb. In reality, the fertilization takes place in culture dish as opposed to a test tube.

This assisted reproduction consists of five steps:

• The ovary is first stimulated using fertility or ovulation drugs. The hormone drugs are taken by the woman for 8-14 consecutive days so that her ovaries will be stimulated in increasing several eggs instead of just one within one menstrual cycle. Blood testing and ultrasound will determine if the eggs are ready to be retrieved.

• Once the eggs are ready, the doctor will perform surgical procedures that will help get the eggs from a woman's ovaries.

• Next step is the insemination. The eggs will be examined to determine their potential for successful conception. The selected eggs will then be placed in an IVF culture where it will wait to be inseminated. Sperm from the father's semen will be obtained during this step and the best swimming sperm will be placed together with the egg.

• Fertilization is the next involved step in IVF treatment. It typically occurs within several hours when the egg is fertilized by the sperm. The doctor will confirm if fertilization has indeed occurred. Normally, the fertilized egg will be observed for up to three days before the next step is commenced.

• Finally, if all the previous steps went well, the resulting embryo will be transferred to the mother's uterus via a catheter. The mother must remain rested and away from stress to promote successful attachment of the embryo to the uterine wall.
