Can I still get pregnant after having a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


So the procedure of a fibroid embolization is not a procedure that is designed to make you pregnant so it’s not a fertility treatment but if there is a fibroid in the uterus, just like I told you in the garden there’s this big ugly plant sitting right there, a baby cannot grow in the uterus. So therefore that causes a miscarriage doesn’t allow the pregnancy to happen, so when we treat the fibroid and it shrinks there’s a chance you’ll get pregnant.

So fibroid embolization is not designed to make you pregnant but if the fibroid was the cause of your not being pregnant and then that cause goes away there is a chance you will be pregnant, so we’ve had patients who get pregnant but I can’t guarantee that there’s no literature suggesting that this will make you pregnant.
