Abstract

The decision to proceed with myomectomy in an asymptomatic patient with unexplained infertility remains controversial. Current data suggest surgical treatment for patients who have uterine cavity distortion. For patients who do not and for whom there are no other demonstrable causes for infertility or miscarriage, patients must be counseled extensively regarding the risks and benefits of surgical treatment. To determine the effectiveness of myomectomy in improving fertility rates for patients with non-submucosal myomas, a large multicenter, prospective, randomized study will be required.
