I'm 50, can I get pregnant since having uterine artery embolization?

It would be very unlikely. Increasing age (over 35) decreases fertility, and it is markedly diminished at age 50. Fibroids also can hinder a woman's fertility, and there may even be a negative impact on fertility from Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) similar to that seen with women that undergo surgery (myomectomy). There have been numerous pregnancies reported after Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) but further studies are needed.
