Welcome to ehealthforum,
Advanced maternal age can make it difficult to conceive. There can be repeated miscarriages, chances of chromosomal anomalies, maternal complications like diabetes, hypertension etc. If the uterine fibroid was not affecting the uterine cavity (or to say it was not a Submucosal or pedunculated fibroid), it would not have caused pregnancy complication. If you are having your uterus intact and functional ovaries, you can go ahead with your pregnancy plans. If you have been trying for pregnancy (for more than a year) and have not been successful, you should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. There are many factors that govern the chances of having a successful pregnancy. Hormonal issues, problems involving ovaries and ovulation, uterine problems, tubal blocks, cervical or vaginal infections, ovarian failure/suppression, complications due to advanced maternal age, etc., should be ruled out for you. For your partner, semen analysis should be done to rule out infections and to confirm the quality and quantity of sperms produced (smoking can affect sperm counts, motility and morphology). Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up and monitoring as instructed. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. Monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen.
Take care.
