USA Fibroid Centers has joined the annual National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) which aims to assist anyone who is trying to conceive.
In recognition of this year’s NIAW, April 24 through April 30, USA Fibroid Centers is raising infertility awareness around fibroids to help empower those struggling with infertility to better understand how these benign tumors of the uterus may cause severe pain, bleeding and infertility.
USA Fibroid Centers Ambassador, Erica Taylor, speaks with the Founder of Broken Brown Egg Foundation Regina Townsend, an infertility non-profit about how to empower, inform and advocate for those questioning or experiencing the impact of infertility.

If you’ve been diagnosed with uterine fibroids, you may be considering fibroid surgery. Perhaps you’ve even been told that hysterectomy, the surgical removal of the uterus, is your only treatment option.
We have good news: The reality of the situation is that you have other options, including Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE).
