Will I still get my period after having a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


Dr. Slonim explains that you will still have your period after having a ufe procedure, but with each menstruation cycle your flow will get lighter.

“Yes, you will still have your period. In fact, it’s very common for your first period after the procedure to be very heavy. You’ll have very heavy flow, but from then it will get lighter and lighter, and lighter. It should not go away completely until you reach menopause, but it should get lighter.”
