Uterine Fibroid Embolization and Sex

Want to find out about the effects of UFE on your sexual desire? Read here to find out the inside scoop about this topic!

Will UFE affect my sexual response?

Most patients report either no change or improvement in their sexual desire and response after Uterine Artery Embolization. Women that experience pain during sex, which can sometimes be a result of the presence of fibroids, usually experience an improvement in this area.

Some women experience intense, pleasurable contractions during orgasm.  This occurrence is called internal orgasm (different from clitoral orgasm) and a few have noted a decrease in this response after the procedure. The exact reason for this is uncertain but may be related to an injury of nerves supplying the cervix. Concerns about effects of UFE on sexuality should be discussed with your Interventional Radiologist during the initial consultation.
