And the doctor who performed the uterine artery embolization. Based on my knowledge, after waiting an appropriate period for healing, there should not be any problem attempting to become pregnant. However, there may be some decrease in fertility if a portion of the uterine lining cannot support a pregnancy. Again, please discuss this with your ob/gyn.

Many studies have described successfully and, presumably, healthy pregnancies carried to term after uterine artery embolization. You will need to consult with your ob/gyn regarding your particular circumstance, especially given your history of cervical pregnancy.
