Will my fibroids or symptoms come back after having a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


Returning fibroids and symptoms after having a UFE varies with the person and is dependent on one’s age. Dr. Suzanne Slonim explains the odds of getting fibroids again.

“The answer to that question depends on our age, OK. So, younger women, women who are prone to making fibroids are going to continue making fibroids, we’ll treat the fibroids that you have and take care of the problem. But if you’re in the younger age range, 30’s and to maybe early 40’s, you still got your normal hormonal stimulation to produce the fibroids, if you’re in your mid to late 40’s you’re approaching menopause, and as you reach menopause the stimulation to form the fibroids is going to go away, so those are your odds, and if you get fibroids again, there’s no reason we can’t do the procedure again.”
