Where do I find egg donors?

They serve as egg donors by expressing interest and then going through a rigorous screening process to ensure they are appropriate candidates. Typically, they provide a detailed health history of themselves and genetic history of their ancestors. Medical and psychological evaluations are performed, in addition to FDA mandated infectious disease testing (e.g. Hepatitis, HIV, syphilis etc).

Is surgery necessary for fibroids?

Surgical removal of fibroids is termed as "Myomectomy". This procedure can be performed either through open abdominal surgical technique or endoscopically (via either the hysteroscope or laparoscope). Surgery for fibroids is indicated if the presenting complaints are: Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual periods) Significant dysmenorrhea (very painful periods) Pressure symptoms (fibroids pressing on bladder or bowels leading to frequent urination or constipation and painful opening of bowels) Infertility (Recurrent) pregnancy loss Preterm labour Trials have indicated that surgery for fibroids is effective irrespective of the route of surgery (open/ laparoscopic). The operating times and pregnancy rates following surgery are comparable with both techniques; the only difference being a slight reduction in the length of stay in the hospital with keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery.
