American women have every right to expect that modern medicine in America will offer them all their options and that minimally invasive procedures will be included. Unfortunately, when it comes to uterine fibroids that expectation is overrated and often unmet.

Uterine fibroids are the bane of many women’s existence. They hurt. They cause bloating, swelling, muscle cramps, severe abdominal pain, impede sexual libido and in short just make life miserable.

Historically Hysterectomy was the only solution, but today it also causes a problem. Hysterectomy is invasive, requires a six to eight-week recovery period, has a high complication rate, requires post-op opioid pain management, and removes all female reproductive organs including the ovaries (which women need all their life for good heart health).

Many women will ignore, deflect, deny, and delay doing anything about fibroids until they become so problematic they must be addressed. That is the wrong way to solve the problem. Several procedures exist to permanent deal with the fibroid problem but now a procedure that is minimally invasive and yields a permanent result without invasive surgery, exaggerated complications, and no removal of the ovaries exist. Providing the woman in question is not concerned with preserving fertility and not planning on pregnancy Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) might be the answer a woman prays for with every cramp.

The procedure is non-invasive done under general anesthesia with an overnight hospital stay, in hospital pain management if needed and a three-day recovery period before returning to work. More importantly, the ovaries and uterus are spared, and sex can resume within ten days to two weeks of the procedure.

Given a choice most women will no doubt opt for the latter, but will physicians offer the option is the question. Learn more an explore your options at and see in Uterine Fibroid Embolization might be right for you.
