Do you want to hear sounds of baby cackles and experience the soft touch of little feet and hands? Motherhood is one of the most beautiful experiences in a woman’s life. But for some women pregnancy is a dream. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine uterine fibroids are common and can affect fertility in many ways. Fibroids are non-cancerous tumors of the female reproductive tract and present many challenging symptoms such as painful and prolonged menstrual periods, frequent urination, pelvic pain and pressure, pain during sexual intercourse, tiredness and fatigue caused by anemia due to loss of blood. Many women suffering from uterine fibroids are told hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus is their only option). According to National Institute of Health more than 200,000 hysterectomies are performed each year for uterine fibroids. Many women suffering from symptoms of fibroids are afraid to seek medical treatments for fibroids as they think they will risk losing their uterus due to hysterectomy. At USA Fibroid Centers we receive many inquiries from fibroid patients everyday, asking us for an alternative fibroid treatment that can remove the fibroid but the uterus saved. Most of these women are in their early 30s and aspire to experience the joys of motherhood. These women never had children and have been told that hysterectomy is their only option. From fearing surgery complications to grieving the loss of fertility, deciding to have a hysterectomy can trigger emotions that other kinds of surgeries probably wouldn’t. These women aren’t aware of the fact that hysterectomy is not the only treatment option for fibroids. We offer minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment for fibroids where fibroids are treated and the uterus is preserved- Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). The procedure takes 45-60 minutes and the patient can go home after a short recovery. Majority women experience relief from fibroid pain and heavy menstrual periods after UFE and maintain hopes to become a mother one day
