The ones that are on the outer part of the uterus, the subserosal ones in general are not involved with fertility in anyway. The intramural ones, the ones that lie in between depending on how big they are and how close they come to the lining could potentially interfere with fertility but it's mainly those central ones, the sub-mucusal fibroid.
