While uterine fibroids can cause a variety of symptoms, they may not cause any symptoms at all. Some women may not even know that they have one. When a woman has fibroids pressing on the uterus, it can prevent normal attachment of a fertilized egg to the inner lining of the uterus. Or, if a embryo does attach to the uterus, the fibroid can limit the embryo’s growth and cause loss of the pregnancy. Both of these effects from fibroids lead to infertility.
