Prolapsed fibroids presenting in pregnancy are rare. Two cases of bleeding prolapsed fibroids, one cervical and the other submucosal, are presented to demonstrate the clinical features and outcomes following surgical treatment during pregnancy. While vaginal myomectomy of a prolapsed cervical fibroid in pregnancy appears safe, prolapse of a submucosal fibroid in pregnancy necessitating excision may be associated with rupture of the membranes.
