I have a question about having a myomectomy

What is a myomectomy?

A fibroid (myoma) is where part of the muscle of your uterus becomes overgrown. A myomectomy is an operation to remove a fibroid.

Why would I have a myomectomy?

You may be suffering from symptoms such as heavy vaginal bleeding, heavy periods and pressure on other structures close your womb such as your bowel and bladder.

What happens during a myomectomy?

The operation is usually performed under a general anaesthetic. Your gynaecologist will use keyhole surgery, and for each fibroid that needs to be removed, your gynaecologist will make a cut on the wall of your womb over the fibroid. The fibroid will be removed and the wall of your womb will be closed using stitches.
