How Do Fibroids Affect Sexual Intercourse?

Read Transcript

Typically they impact sex kind of indirectly, because commonly they are bleeding so heavily so a woman will often be anemic they're tired, they're weak. Let's face it, sex is exercise, and if you're tired and fatigued it's all you can do just to get through the day, you're not interested in having sex, and secondly, when you're bleeding so heavily, you're flooding, you're gushing, you're pading yourself up with all this gear on, women don't feel sexual.

So, sex usually drops off dramatically in interest, and in because it's, they're anemic and tired and weak. After the fibroids are treated with UFE for instance, we've seen patients sex lives increase dramatically. They are no longer anemic, their iron and hemoglobin levels are normal, they get these rocket boost of energy, they're not pading themselves up anymore, they feel sexual, they have the energy and so sex is usually much better after the fibroids are treated.
