Everyone knows how painful menstrual cramps hurt. Every woman goes through it, and each one of them can tell you how it feels. However, what hurts even more as compared to period cramps are Uterine Fibroids, Yes, you heard us right!

Uterine Fibroids are unnatural growths of muscle that accumulate on the walls of the uterus. These fibroids are the non-cancerous tumors of the uterus which can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, prolonged periods, pain, pelvic pressure, and bloating. 

Uterine fibroids can be of varying lengths, ranging from less than 1mm to 8 inches, or even larger, and are fairly common in women.

Best Treatment Option for Uterine Fibroids

Diagnosis of fibroids is done through pelvic exams and ultrasound treatments. These methods help medical professionals understand the characteristics of the fibroids present and prescribe the treatment option to the patient.

Although there are many different types of treatment like Hysterectomy, Myomectomy, etc. these methods require a traditional open-cut surgical operation to remove fibroids to preserve the uterus. Compared to these painful treatments, a better option is choosing Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) procedure for treating uterine fibroids.

Uterine fibroid embolization is a minimally invasive procedure to treat uterine fibroids. It involves blocking the blood supply to the fibroids in the uterus, effectively reducing their size and the associated symptoms. 

This procedure is performed by a trained Vascular Interventional Radiologist in a Cath lab wherein a small IV line is placed in an artery of the groin or wrist and a catheter is navigated to reach the uterine artery. The fibroids are then blocked by injecting 500-700 micron-sized microspheres and this procedure does not require any incision. There is no injury or bleeding expected during or because of the procedure.

 

UFE is recognized as a safe & effective treatment for Uterine fibroids by the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ACOG). Unlike some fibroid treatments, UFE targets all the fibroids in the uterus and can also be used to treat pain & heavy bleeding associated with Adenomyosis.
