While there is never a guarantee that the UFE procedure will increase fertility or solve fertility issues, many women find that they are able to become pregnant naturally after uterine fibroid embolization. As the video above dramatically shows, natural pregnancy is possible after UFE in many cases.
Should I Have a UFE if I Want to Become Pregnant?
There are a number of factors involved with pregnancy for women who have fibroids. The best way to assess the probability of becoming pregnant after the uterine fibroid embolization procedure is to make an appointment with Dr. Lipman to evaluate your unique personal health situation. Dr. Lipman can provide you with an appraisal of your chances for becoming pregnant after the UFE procedure, and help you to compare the various options for treating uterine fibroids and your ability to conceive using each option.
How Can I Increase My Probability for Becoming Pregnant?
Dr. Lipman provides several other procedures for improving fertility. While these procedures are not related to UFE, they can often improve probabilities for becoming pregnant. Hysterosalpingography (HSG) is used to detect a blockage in one or both Fallopian Tubes, and Fallopian Tubal Recanalization (TFTR) is used to clear the fallopian tubes should any obstructions be identified. Please visit the fertility section of this website, where both procedures are described in more detail.
