Uterine Fibroids are a Common Cause of Female Infertility

The uterus is a muscular organ that accepts an embryo and supports/protects the development of a fetus to term. Following fertilization of the egg in the fallopian tube, the resulting embryo migrates to the uterine cavity, where it implants.

In order for the embryo to properly implant, the uterine cavity should be free of large obstructions caused by polyps or fibroids, and must be normally shaped.
