If you’re interested in having children, fibroid embolization makes good sense. A hysterectomy obviously ends any chance of getting pregnant. Fibroid surgeries like myomectomy may cause uterine scarring and impact the ability to conceive. 50% of all myomectomy patients experience fibroid regrowth. The window for having a fibroid-free uterus, optimal for pregnancy, is often less than a year.
Fibroid embolization preserves fertility. It won’t interfere with the womb or remove any of its tissue. There’s no fibroid re-growth, so you can get pregnant when you are ready, rather than racing against a fibroid re-occurrence.
Fibroid embolization means that patients of child-bearing age who want to conceive, generally can. Over 30 women in our practice have had normal pregnancies and healthy babies following this procedure.
