If you’re dealing with the harsh realities of fibroid symptoms, you know how much they can impact your life. Heavy menstrual bleeding, severe cramping, frequent urination, and low energy are all symptoms that uterine fibroids can cause. The good news is that relief is available with uterine fibroid treatment.
At USA Fibroid Centers, we offer Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) to help patients who suffer from the effects of fibroids. These non-cancerous tumors may appear in or on the uterus and can be a single fibroid or a cluster. Fibroids can cause harm to nearby organs and affect fertility.
The type of fibroid, as well as its location and size, can impact how severe the symptoms are or whether you have any at all. Many women aren’t well-informed about fibroids because of the lack of awareness about this issue in general. Patients often believe their only option is a hysterectomy, which will render them infertile. They may have never heard of UFE or realize that it is a viable option that helps them retain their fertility.
If you are suffering from symptoms from fibroids, which impacts your life, relationships, and career, you can get relief. Our fibroid specialists in Washington DC at our USA Fibroid Centers will discuss your treatment options and answer any questions you may have.
