I don't have any children yet, and my doctor know i want children. I had the myomectomy surgery once years ago. My doctor don't want to do the surgery again, and wants me to try the ufe. We did hormone therapy and it didn't work. What do you think i should do next?

Hello. Thank you for posting.

I'm sorry, but we don't advise patients on treatments. This is something you need to discuss with your doctor in more detail. It can be difficult to get pregnant after a UFE. I can give you some general information.

According to WebMD: Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a procedure done by a radiologist. It blocks blood flow to fibroids in the uterus. (It is also called uterine artery embolization.)
