Do you have heavy bleeding, irregular periods or uterine fibroids? Are you struggling to find the right solution and get back to your life? If so, your doctor may recommend a hysterectomy.
Although hysterectomy is one of the most common surgeries for women living in the United States, myths about removal of the uterus are plentiful. Is it really necessary? How does it affect your health? Are there other options?
A Hysterectomy May Not Be Necessary
Sometimes there is a definite need for a hysterectomy, especially if you have cancer. However if you have fibroids, you may be a candidate for Uterine Fibroid Embolization.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is for women with fibroids who don’t want to have surgery. It is the most reliable way to treat fibroids with a safe and effective non-surgical procedure.
During a UFE procedure, a tiny tube is fed through the blood vessels right to the uterus and the blood flow to all the fibroids is blocked from the inside. The woman can go home the same day, and the recovery time is usually 7-10 days, much less than hysterectomy.
