I have one large fibroid that was discovered when I was pregnant with my son 17 yrs ago. My OB/GYN advised me to leave it alone and watch. He also told me that taking the pill would make it grow larger so I did not use the pill after my son was born. I then had my daughter 3 1/2 yrs later.
I am now 46yrs old and and now post-menopausal and I still have my fibroid and have no issues with. I guess it will shrink since my estrogen is very low.
My sister had a few and was having back pain and she was advised to have a hysterectomy. Long story short....the back pain was still there after her hysterectomy
