Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids
Fibroids are benign growths that develop on uterine tissue. Many women have them — it’s estimated that 26 million women in the US between the ages of 15 and 50 have fibroids. And they don’t always cause symptoms.
However, when they do, the symptoms can inhibit your quality of life and cause severe pain, discomfort, and even embarrassment.
Here are some of the most common signs and symptoms of fibroids:
- Regular bloating or constipation
- Frequent need to urinate
- Fatigue from anemia
- Pelvic pain
- Lower back pain
- Heavy bleeding
- Severe menstrual cramps
If you need relief from fibroid symptoms, make an appointment at our 1st Avenue fibroid center in East Harlem. We’re located near the Innovation Charter High School and the Washington Housing Playground.
Why We Offer UFE for Uterine Fibroids
You may have heard that a hysterectomy is your only option for treatment with uterine fibroids. Many women who come to our clinic for help have put off treatment for their fibroid symptoms because they didn’t want to go through a surgical procedure.
The good news is that surgery isn’t necessary. In fact, when compared to other treatments, including a hysterectomy, myomectomy, and non-surgical options, UFE stands out as the best option for fibroid treatment.
UFE is a safe, effective, FDA-approved procedure performed by fibroid doctors in the United States for over 25 years. There’s no need for general anesthesia, stitches, or an overnight hospital stay.
At our fibroid treatment center in East Harlem, our patients can go home the same day as their treatment and recover faster.
They also experience excellent results. Read our testimonials to find out what our patients say about their experiences at USA Fibroid Centers.

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.
Here’s a look at how UFE compares to myomectomy, hysterectomy, Acessa, and other treatments for fibroids.

Frequently Asked Questions
What fibroid treatments does the USA Fibroid Center on 1st Avenue offer?
At the USA Fibroid Center on 1st Avenue we primarily offer Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). This minimally-invasive technique targets fibroids by reducing their blood supply, leading to fewer symptoms and quick recovery, usually within 1-2 weeks.
How should I prepare for my appointment at the USA Fibroid Center on 1st Avenue?
For your UFE treatment on 1st Avenue, avoid specific medications, foods, and substances 24 hours prior. Please bring essential documents like your photo ID, medication list, prior fibroid treatment records, and insurance card. Ensure someone is available to drive you home after the procedure.
How can I consult with a fibroid specialist on 1st Avenue?
Schedule an appointment at our 1st Avenue clinic or opt for a telemedicine consultation. Our UFE procedure is less invasive than traditional surgeries, involves no incisions, and preserves the uterus.
Is a UFE the same as a UAE?
Uterine artery embolization (UAE) is another term for UFE. Both of these procedures are the same. They are non-surgical treatments that stop the blood supply to uterine arteries, which causes fibroids to shrink and eventually die.
What insurance does your fibroid clinic accept?
Our clinic accepts most major insurance policies. We also offer affordable payment plans to help our patients access the care they need.
To learn more, contact the friendly medical administrative assistants at our East Harlem fibroid center. You can also verify your insurance in real-time using our secure online scheduling tool.
How long does the UFE procedure take?
UFE is a relatively short procedure. It usually takes about an hour. However, if you have a complex case with many large fibroids, it can take longer.
