Does uterine fibroid embolization affect fertility?

Does uterine fibroid embolization affect fertility?

Yes!: These procedures should only be performed for women who are done having kids or are sure they don't want kids in the future. Uterine fibroid embolization (ufe) and uterine artery embolization (uae) block off blood vessels that supply fibroids - fibroids shrink but don't go away 100%. Some of the vessel-blocking material reduces blood flow to your ovaries, lowering egg supply (ovarian reserve). ...Read more

Fibroids: Are relatively common, and if you are not having any symptoms related to them, probably nothing needs to be done. It sounds like you had a transabdominal ultrasound and your ovaries could not be seen due to bowel gas. This happens occasionally. If your doctor wants to check your ovaries, you need to have a transvaginal ultrasound. If the ovaries are still difficult to see, MRI might be useful. ...Read more

Can anterior subserous fibroid affect pregnancy?

Yes: This depends on fibroid size and location and especially if the fibroid extends or protrudes into the uterine cavity. Fibroids respond to estrogen (high in pregnancy) by increasing in size. They may revert to normal size after pregnancy. They can also interfere with normal labor. Most obstetricians measure them with ultrasound monthly or so during pregnancy. ...Read more

You might be a good candidate for an endometrial ablation assuming you are done with having babies. ...Read more
