  • Fibroids1: Will I be able to conceive after having the UFE procedure?
    Dr. Moises Yoselevitz: The question of fertility, it is still being investigated. We do know for a fact, however, that patients that undergo uterine artery embolization can get pregnant and carry successful pregnancies to term. The Society of Interventional Radiology is putting together the statistics in order to give the public better information on fertility issues. But almost everyone that has done uterine artery embolizations has success stories of patients that were able to get pregnant in the aftermath of the procedure.
