Although there is a connection between fertility and fibroid, no cause-and-effect relationship has been identified. The majority of the research comes from infertility clinics and referral hospitals. In a medical institution, a retrospective study was conducted with direct patients from a rural poor socioeconomic community. The reproductive performance of 70 women with fibroids was compared to that of an equivalent number of age-matched women who attended Gynecological Outpatients. Women with fibroid have a fecundity of 2.46, compared to 2.56 in controls. While the rate of conception is marginally higher in women with sub mucous fibroids than in controls, the live birth rate is substantially lower. Pregnancy loss is nearly double in women with submucous fibroids compared to control women. Women with fibroids that were not submucosal did just as well as controls. As a result, we can deduce that women with submucous fibroids lose more pregnancies and try to have more conceptions in their attempt to have children. The relationship between fibroids and fertility and reproductive performances is well established.
