Today is International Women’s Day, a day that marks the great contributions of women over the years. It is time to look back and feel proud to be a woman and set milestones for a successful future, Health is one of the most important factors when it comes to achieving success in personal, career and community life, Uterine Fibroids is one of the most common and benign tumors of the female reproductive tract that can affect any ethnicity, weight and class of women. Women of child bearing age are at a higher risk for developing fibroids. Whether a woman has a professional career or is a stay at home mother, life with uterine fibroids is painful and challenging. Although fibroid tumors are non-cancerous they can cause many painful symptoms like heavy and prolonged menstrual periods, frequent urination, pelvic pain and pressure, and pain during sexual intercourse. Sometimes the heavy and prolonged menstrual bleeding that can sometime continue for more than a week can lead to fatigue and tiredness leading to iron deficiency-anemia. If fibroid symptoms are left untreated they can lead to serious complications. Though a lot of women don’t report fibroid symptoms as they are afraid of hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus). According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) uterine fibroids lead to more than 200,000 hysterectomies every year. At USA Fibroid Centers we offer minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment for uterine fibroids where the fibroid tumor is shrunk and the uterus is preserved. This treatment is called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) and is considered to be the gold standard in fibroid care, Unlike surgical treatments for fibroids this procedure is performed at one of our USA Fibroid Centers locations and the patient can go home after a short recovery, Majority women feel great relief from fibroid pain, have shorter and lighter menstrual periods and other symptoms under control as well.
