— How it works —

What happens during Uterine Fibroid Embolization?

A needle poke is made in your thigh or wrist

A small tube called a catheter is threaded from the wrist or thigh to the blood vessels that supply nutrients to fibroids.

Tiny beads are injected into the fibroids

The beads block the arteries supplying blood to the fibroids, stopping their blood flow. The catheter is then removed.

Fibroids shrink, eliminating symptoms

Symptoms go away as the fibroids shrink. 90% of women report a significant decrease in their symptoms after 3 months. [source]

88% of women would recommend uterine fibroid embolization to a friend. [source]

When I went to Helped, the process was so fast and so easy to talk to them on the phone. The fact that they got me in so fast was truly amazing, but they also got me with the BEST doctors.

I started noticing big changes after a couple months, but little changes right away--no pain! I recommend UFE 100%. That changed my life big time.

Kathy C.
Albuquerque, NM

Since UFE I feel like I started to experience immediate relief...that pressure was gone right after the procedure. Overall, my life has completely turned around.

Olivia D.

I had my ufe procedure 4 days ago. So far so good.

Allison D.
Covington, GA

I had one [UFE] in September no pain at all. I had seven Fibroids.

Patricia H.
Philadelphia, PA

Had mine done 1/4/2022, and I haven't felt this good in 17 yrs...every other dr wanted to do a complete hysterectomy no one suggested this [UFE] procedure. I didn't have to suffer this long.

Molly R.
USA

I had the procedure done omg I don't feel like I have to urinate all the time. Mine [fibroid] was as big as a grapefruit. My stomach doesn't protrude anymore. I actually cried because I feel sooo much better. I would recommend this procedure to any women.
