After years of heavy bleeding that led to feelings of embarrassment and isolation, Denise knew it was time to speak up. A trip to the gynecologist revealed that she had several uterine fibroids, one the size of a grapefruit.

Initially she was told to do nothing and wait it out until she reached menopause. Knowing she could not subject herself to additional years of suffering, she sought a second opinion; it was then that she learned of uterine fibroid embolization.

Denise says the procedure was far easier than she thought and she feels amazing. It changed her life.

“Since the procedure I am able to just pick up and go.”
