Women who have been treated for fibroids sometimes develop new ones, so it’s important to report any new symptoms to your doctor or the team at the Center for Fibroid Care. Your doctor can also connect you with providers who can aid with fertility, help you manage pain, and provide emotional support.
If you are unable to become pregnant after treatment with medication or surgery, your doctor may refer you and your partner to NYU Langone’s Fertility Center or NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York, where our experts offer consultations and treatment for a variety of fertility challenges.
Fibroid-related chronic pain can be managed with psychological and integrative medicine therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnosis, and relaxation training. Your NYU Langone doctor can refer you to a psychologist, pain management specialist, or practitioner of integrative medicine. All of these specialists are trained in treating women with chronic pelvic pain.
Fibroids can interfere with your quality of life. Doctors at NYU Langone can refer you to psychologists and support groups to help you manage chronic pain or infertility related to fibroids.
