Summary: Despite the reports and recommendations of some surgeons for women to not undergo uterine artery embolization if they wish to maintain their fertility, here is a case of a woman that was able to maintain her fertility after UAE. Not only was she able to become pregnant after the procedure, but the surgeons were able to fix her abnormal uterine cavity during surgery. This case demonstrates that not all women are the same and fertility is still possible after UAE.
