Get another opinion. That's a new one. You're so young to have such a problem that you wouldn't be able to have kids unless you had them within a year of surgery because of fibroids just doesn't make sense to me and especially if you don't think you want them. If that's true, then just don't get pregnant if your heart really isn't in it for the long haul. It's an 18 year commitment.

im going to infertily doctor and i have already had one small surgery. hey have pictures of everything. the fibroid is inside my uterus. my uterus is three times the size of a normal persons. i have very little room from the fibroid to my urterine lining. they said this is very unlikely for someone my age but it does happen.
