What are the risks and side effects of uterine embolisation for fibroids? Can it shut down ovarian function and trigger menopause?

What are the risks and  side effects of uterine embolisation for fibroids? 

Can it shut down ovarian function and trigger menopause?

Rarely: Overall, the risk of complications from uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is quite low. Infection is the most serious risk, sometimes requiring hysterectomy. There is a small risk of premature menopause, seemingly higher in women over 40. It is probably more difficult to get pregnant after UFE. But overall it is an effective, safe procedure for symptomatic fibroids. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with uterine fibroids - large one right side- can this cause pain around umbilicus (right)? Scared of ovar. ca.

Depends: fibroids are like knots in a tree, that just exist as a irregularity, but have no effect on its ultimate health. They do not inherently cause pain unless they are degenerating and even then the pain is usually excruciating. If your pain is mild to moderate, it might be something else unless your fibroi is so large that it is compressing a structure. ...Read more

What makes fibroids in the uterus to move from side to side ? And how do fibroids breath?

What  makes  fibroids in the uterus to move from side to side ? And how do fibroids breath?

Pedunculated?: Fibroids in the wall of the uterus can not move. Fibroids outside of the uterus connected to the surface of the uterus by a thin stalk (pedicle) are called pedunculated and can move around. Fibroids get oxygen from their blood supply from the uterine arteries. Pedunculated fibroids sometimes twist on their pedicles and block their blood supply which can cause pain. ...Read more

Is this part of a symtomps from multiple uterine fibroids pain from my lower pelvic pain comes at anytime even im lying on the right side pain evywher?

Could be: Depending on the size, location of your fibroids - yes. They can cause pelvic pain, position changes can exacerbate sometimes. Other causes of positional pains can be: hernias, groin pulls, ovarian cysts. But it could definitely be due to fibroids if they are large. Honestly - small fibroids, (2cm or less, often do not cause pain). ...Read more

Not likely: Hormones are blamed for a lot of things, but it would be difficult to link your symptoms to hormonal imbalance. Fibroids and cysts will not necessarily upset your hormone balance. But there is much that we do not yet know. ...Read more

I have fibroids which have bee causing pain in my left side. My head hurts on that side as well as my legs and pelvic area. What is wrong with me? :(

Fibroids: Fibroids can be causing the pelvic and leg pain by putting pressure on the nerves running inside the pelvis (some nerves go from the spine to the leg through the pelvis). The headaches may be stress or tension headaches caused by the chronic pain, but are not directly related to the fibroids. ...Read more

29 y/o f w/ 2 exophytic subserosal uterine fibroids on the right side of the pelvis. Anterior 6.5 x 5.9 x 7.3 cm; posterior: 10.3 x9.1x 9 cm.Surgery?

That depends: On if you are done having children, or would still like the option to try. Those are pretty big measurements, and could possibly complicate every aspect of pregnancy.They can also keep growing--sometimes very quickly and can get quite large. You are close to the threshold of being able to do a vaginal hysterectomy at all.Wait too much longer, and you might have no choice but abdominal. Talk to doc. ...Read more
