  • Women can restore their fertility by simply undergoing a minimal invasive treatment with uterine fibroids (UFE)
  • UFE can be performed in patients with a prior myomectomy or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
  • “In our study there are now almost 200 newborns following UFE,” Dr. Pisco said

USA, June 13: If you wish to enter the motherhood and are pregnant with a thought of bearing a child but infertility creates hurdles for you, then here is a study which will prove a boon to you.

According to a study, women can restore their fertility by simply undergoing a minimal invasive treatment with uterine fibroids. These smooth muscle tumors of the uterus are majorly responsible for infertility in women consequently creating bottlenecks and complications in the pregnancy.


The study suggests a treatment through ‘Uterine fibroid embolization’ (UFE). It involves an injection of an embolic agent which is basically prepared by tiny beads. This injection makes its way into the uterine arteries and cuts away the blood supply to the fibroids and uterus. When the blood supply is blocked, fibroids begin fading away by contracting and shrinking. As a result uterus begins to prosper again.

Removing these fibroids through surgery or myomectomy is also an option to revive fertility in women. But as per stated by study co-author Joao Martins Pisco, with myomectomy comes other complications such as hysterectomy.

“Our findings show that UFE is a fertility-restoring procedure in women with uterine fibroids, who wish to conceive and pregnancy following UFE appears to be safe with low morbidity,” Dr. Pisco said.

ANI news reported: “UFE can be performed in patients with a prior myomectomy or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)”.

A test was conducted on 359 women who were not capable of conceiving due to the uterine fibroids. They underwent the UFE treatment. It was seen as a result that out of 359 women, 149 (41.5%) were able to bear children one or more than one time in the span of almost six years. It is also important to note that 131 women give birth to about 150 babies in total. What excites more is the fact that it was for the first time for more than 85 percent of the women to enter their motherhood.

It has been further informed that the procedure was successful in 79 percent of the cases and in removing fibroid-related symptoms. However, there were complications too accounting to approximately 14.6 percent for partial UFE and 23.1 for conventional UFE.

“In our study there are now almost 200 newborns following UFE,” Dr. Pisco said.

The box of the Mysore Sandal Soap

Karnataka is famous for Sandalwood, and this is best projected in the state's own Mysore Sandal Soap. This golden, fragrant soap that is rich with the goodness of Sandalwood, has a rather fascinating history behind it, and it is not for cosmetic benefit at all.

Mysore Sandal Soap, surprisingly, was not created by anyone interested in the beauty benefits of soap or its cosmetic value. Instead, it was created by Maharaja Krishna Raja Wodeyar IV and Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya, the Diwan of Mysore.
