Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.
This is a question that only the surgeon who removed the fibroids can answer. It depends on the location of the fibroids and whether the incision entered the uterus. 6 months is usually sufficient.

The uterine cavity was breached.

I had a combination of intramural, submucosal and subserous.

I think my main concern is the clomid causing the fibroids to regrow all of a sudden

Hi and welcome to the site. My name is***** and I'll be providing your medical information today.

Six months is generally considered long enough healing time to proceed with pregnancy. It's not so much the Clomid itself that would cause the fibroids to regrow but elevated levels of estrogen during pregnancy if you were successful.

This is a risk that can't be predicted. Fibroid do tend to grow with elevated levels of estrogen. Hopefully your myomectomy was complete enough that no small fibroids got left behind.

I hope this was helpful. Let me know if I can clarify anything.
