Uterine Fibroid Symptoms
Fibroids are benign tumors that grow in or on your uterus, varying in size, number, and location. While some women don’t experience any symptoms, others have symptoms that can interfere with their quality of life.
Some of the most common symptoms of fibroids include:
- Pelvic pain
- Lower back pain
- Abdominal swelling
- Frequent urination
- Heavy bleeding during or between periods
- Painful intercourse

It’s important to understand that fibroids don’t generally go away on their own, and, often, symptoms get worse. In some cases, the fibroids start to degenerate, which can be extremely painful. Often, after fibroid degeneration, the growths begin developing again, leading to more problems.
The only way to get rid of uterine fibroids is to treat them.

How UFE Compares to Other Uterine Fibroid Treatments
UFE works by cutting off the blood supply to any existing fibroids. Because it addresses all of your fibroids at once, you can get lasting relief with one procedure. It’s also effective for treating large fibroids, which is why so many women prefer it to surgical options and other treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fibroid Treatment
Here are answers to some of the questions we receive about fibroid treatment at our Downtown Washington DC clinic.
What is the cost of fibroid treatment?
Surgery for fibroids can cost between $9,000 and $20,000. Non-surgical treatment options such as UFE are less expensive, making fibroid treatment affordable to more women. Also, most major insurers cover the costs of treatment for symptomatic cases.

We also offer affordable payment options. Call our DC clinic at (202) 951-1936 to learn more.
How is UFE different from UAE?
Uterine artery embolization, or UAE, is another term for UFE. UAE is the general term for the process of blocking off the blood flow or uterine arteries. While uterine fibroid embolization is a UAE performed specifically to treat uterine fibroids.
Is there pain after the UFE procedure?
Most women experience some pain in the abdominal region for the first few days after the procedure. The pain usually starts to lessen after the first day and can be managed with a heating pad.
