Understanding painful periods
Painful periods can be a cause for concern and sometimes they indicate Uterine Fibroids. This page will address common questions like these to help you gain clarity and make informed decisions about your health. It’s important to educate yourself and consult with your doctor to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms.
Uterine Fibroids Treatment Options
There are several options for treating uterine fibroids. Your doctor may suggest hormonal medications first. If these treatment options prove unsuccessful, you typically then have two procedures to choose from: the old-fashioned hysterectomy or the newer more advanced embolization (UFE).
Uterine Fibroid Embolization vs Hysterectomy
In the past, women had few options other than hysterectomy to remove fibroids. Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. Although this operation is effective, it removes much more than fibroids. It is major surgery that comes with long recovery times, a hospital stay, and receiving general anesthesia.
Women who undergo a hysterectomy no longer have their uterus and, therefore, are no longer able to become pregnant. Removing the uterus can cause hormonal issues and trouble with the bladder, bowels, and the pelvic floor after the operation. Removal of the cervix results in sexual dysfunction in up to 30% of patients.

How Much Will Uterine Fibroid Embolization Cost?
Uterine fibroids are a common condition that affects many women. It involves blocking the blood supply to the fibroids, which causes them to shrink and eventually disappear. Fortunately, there is a modern treatment option available that is safe and covered by most healthcare plans.
