study shows fertility after UFE same as for myomectomy

Interesting information for those who may be considering uterine fibroid embolization.  Study results here.

However, according to this page 1-5% of women who have UFE end up in menopause.  A bit more information here -- embolization may disrupt blood supply to the ovaries in some cases.  Also, here is some other scary info about UFE and possible side effects, plus the fact that you can't take the spheres out once they are put in -- so it doesn't seem like this is an easy answer.
