Feeling Better with Help

The physical and emotional toll that fibroids can have on a woman, can adversely affect how a woman feels about herself and how she feels about her body.

It can also affect how she walks, how she sits, and how she stands. All of which can make her appear lacking in confidence and can send other body language messages as well.

Add to that, the many disruptive, challenging, and even painful symptoms that come along with having uterine fibroids, of various sizes and numbers.

All of this makes perfect sense when you think about what women with fibroids have to deal with, sometimes on a daily basis. Such as:

• Unusually heavy period

• Long than normal periods

• Bleeding in between periods

• Pressure and pain in the pelvis

• Frequent urination

• Lower back pain

• Pain during intercourse

• Difficulty conceiving

Fortunately, help is available.

In fact, there are many ways to manage uterine fibroid symptoms, such as medication, as well as dietary and lifestyle changes. However, the only way to really address and treat the fibroids themselves is through surgery or a non-invasive technique called Uterine Fibroid Embolization.

UFE is a non-invasive outpatient procedure that is proven to reduce fibroid symptoms.

The procedure is done by an expert interventional radiologist who will insert a tiny catheter into the wrist.

Then through the use of moving x-ray technology, the catheter is guided through the blood vessels until it reaches the artery supplying blood to the fibroids.

Once in place, teeny tiny beads are released through the catheter and into the artery, where they create a blockage.

Though the word blockage may sound scary, in this case, it is not.

Unlike a blockage to the heart or other vital organ which can be deadly, this particular blockage is only cutting off the blood supply to the fibroid. Fibroids can not survive without the vital nutrients they receive through the blood. As a result, the fibroids shrink and die, as do the fibroid symptoms.

According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the success rate of uterine fibroid embolization is up to 95%.

By treating the fibroids themselves, you can finally experience freedom from fibroid symptoms, including the impact they can have on your body image, and your posture.
