In brief: A great procedure

Ufe is a wonderful procedure for most women with symptomatic uterine fibroids.
There has been some discussion about pregnancy and ufe. Ufe is not contraindicated in women who desire pregnancy. There have been multiple studies where women actually improve pregnancy rates but it is not meant simply to make it easier. There is some evidence of increased c-section rates with patients post ufe.

Agree with above. I have had numerous pregnancies after UFE including 2 set of twins. The births are typically full-term and vaginal.
