Hi, I have just had an USS and found out the symptoms I have are caused by fibroids (significantly heavy periods, large clots, severe cramp, pain during sex, heavy pressure and bloating, diarrhea and urinary incontinence). To say I was anxious prior to the scan was an understatement, self-diagnosing is never good but I was glad to find out that atm I'm not dying. However now comes the knowledge that I may never have children and that terrifies me. Im 32, single and have just accomplished my dream job, when now I should be looking to start my family, I find I may be too late. I still have so many unanswered questions and a long journey to travel that I may be overthinking and jumping to the worst conclusion, but to be told that my uterus is significantly enlarged (10x14cm) and that the sonographer was unable to see the uterine lining, do not sound good in my limited knowledge. Having researched I know that I will likely be offered a myomectomy, surgery that could potentially bring my dreams of being a mother or completely wipe them out. How do you manage in the interim? Id love any advice that will help me stop thinking of the worst senario whilst im awaiting referral. Thank you
