Depends on the size and how many. Small ones can be removed quite easily via a HSG and might be fine, while larger ones might need surgery and introduce the risk of infection or scarring.

For many women, fibroids are not much of an issue at all unless they distort the shape of the uterine cavity. Sometimes removing is more risky than keeping them as there may be an increased risk of scar tissue or uterine rupture. In about 3% or infertile women, the only cause is fibroids.
So it may not be all doom and gloom.
