Hello, I'm Dr Manos, board certified obgyn. How old is your daughter, how large are the fibroids and how long is there heavy bleeding? Surgery is planned next month which should help in the long run.

Expert:  Dr Ted Manos replied 1 year ago.

Continued bleeding is not good and only some type of surgery will handle the problem. If the fibroids are large then the best surgery would be to remove the uterus with the fibroids. Surgery always has risk but the fibroids are probably the cause of pain and bleeding. The ovary cyst is probably not cancer and the doctor would decide what to do with the ovaries. Hopefully, she won't need a transfusion of blood with the surgery.
