May is Women's Health Month. It's vital for women as caregivers to take care of their health. According to doctors, uterine fibroids are very common among women. Most do not cause symptoms. Symptoms can include bleeding and pelvic pain, urinary problems, constipation problems. Doctors say, temporary relief can sometimes be obtained with medications, and most common treatments are hysterectomy, myomectomy, and embolization.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive procedure that works by blocking the arteries that feed blood (oxygen and nutrients) to the fibroids, forcing them to shrink, while preserving the uterus.
