Abstract—Fibroid (myoma) is the most common benign tumors of the uterus. Chances of complications are approximately 10-40% in the presence of fibroids. This study was aimed to assess the maternal & fetal outcome and complications in pregnancy with fibroids. It was conducted on 20 pregnant women with fibroid. Routine basic investigations were done for all subjects included in the study. Ultrasonography was done at booking visit and during subsequent visits to assess changes in size of the fibroid and associated complications. It was found that Fibroids were more frequent in multigravidae (65%) than primigravidae (35%). Majoriy (70%) were diagnosed as having fibroid during routine antenatal visits and 30% were known case of fibroid prior to conception. Twenty five women had pain, 10% had threatened preterm labor, 15% had spontaneous miscarriage, 30% had anemia and placenta previa was diagnosed in 15% women. Majority (60%) had Lower segment cesarean section (LSCS) and only 40% had vaginal delivery. Though many fibroids are asymptomatic but fibroids during pregnancy can lead to complications during the antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum period, so they need proper follow-ups and repeated assessment. Overall prognosis depends on their location and size
