Is Pregnancy Over 40 Possible After Embolization For Fibroids?

Pregnancy Over 40 After Fibroids

When I was in my early 30's (long before I was married or wanted children), I had major abdominal surgery to remove some fibroids that were growing quite fast.  I was actually considered quite young to have a problem which happened to have started when I was in my 20's.

My site: www.getpregnantover40.com

I had fibroids removed by a fertility doctor because maybe I would want to get pregnant one day

Interestingly, I went to a fertility doctor just because I thought he might be the most progressive in terms of possible treatments.  I guess I also had in the back of my mind that maybe I might want to get pregnant one day.  As it turns out, I wound up having major abdominal surgery to remove my fibroids.  Apparently, at the time, laser technology had not progessed far enough to have a scope with laser removal.

Uterine artery embolization for fibroids is less invasive, but women wanting to get pregnant should weigh all the options

 Nowadays, there is a somewhat new procedure called uterine artery embolization. However, if you want to get pregnant this procedure isn't always recommended.

My site: http://www.getpregnantover40.com

 Here is a study that gives the pregnancy results of women who had previously undergone uterine embolization:

American Journal Of Obstetrics and Gynecology

From the article:

Objective: This study was undertaken to evaluate the incidence and outcome of pregnancies after
uterine artery embolization (UAE) for symptomatic uterine fibroids.
Study design: A retrospective analysis of all pregnancies after UAE by a single interventional
Results: Fifty-six completed pregnancies were identified in approximately 1200 women after
UAE. One hundred eight patients were attempting to become pregnant and 33 of these became
pregnant. Thirty-three (58.9%) of the 56 pregnancies had successful outcomes. Six (18.2%) of
these were premature. Seventeen (30.4%) pregnancies miscarried. There were 3 terminations, 2
stillbirths, and 1 ectopic pregnancy. Of the 33 deliveries, 24 (72.7%) were delivered by cesarean
section. There were 13 elective sections and the indication for 9 was fibroids. There were 6 cases
of postpartum hemorrhage (18.2%).
Conclusion: Compared with the general obstetric population, there is a significant increase in
delivery by cesarean section and an increase in preterm delivery, postpartum hemorrhage, miscarriage,
and lower pregnancy rates. When taking into account the demographics of the study population,
these results can be partly explained. There were no other obstetric risk identified.

Natural Health Techniques for Fertility

Get pregnant naturally resource

 I found a site for Dr. Denice Moffat who specializes in natural health techniques to help women get pregnant. This site has a wealth of information on causes and natural treatments for male and female infertility.

 My site: You Can Get Pregnant Over 40, Naturally (www.getpregnantover40.com)

Click through the link below to get information on how to detoxify your body in preparation for conception, how to deal with immune antibodies, how your emotions may be affecting your fertility, supplements for fertility, and dietary changes to increase your chances of conception

Scroll down and read all of the information. I learned so much from this site and I'm sure you will too:


How Allergies and Gastrointestinal Disorders Affect Fertility: 

From the article:

Gastrointestinal Diseases and Allergies and their role in Fertility:

Gut flora imbalances can be very important for achieving optimal fertility. The gut flora can affect hormone availability as the gut flora metabolizes hormones like a second liver (the liver is the most important organ for processing hormones.) If you don’t have healthy gut flora, you can waste a lot of money on supplements and food. The goal is to get as much detoxification and purification as possible to make your body as healthy as it can be so you can produce eggs and sperm that will, in turn, create healthy and happy babies.

Food allergies need to be addressed individually and managed. I often see that the safest thing to do for most diseases if to follow the Eat for Your Type program. This works for most of the population in that it eliminates most of the foods that irritate the body causing the body to respond with all kinds of allergic symptoms.

Celiac Disease is linked to malabsorption, recurrent miscarriage, premature menopause, lowered fertility and reduced semen quality because the body is not absorbing the nutrients it needs to maintain healthy tissues.

Wheat and Dairy sensitivities are linked to endometriosis. In endometriosis, the uterine tissue thickens and is covered by very thick mucous which prevents embryos from implanting.

The Great Lie About Fertility In The 40's

                                                                               Picture:  dailymail.co.uk
Miracle: A month after being told that she had no chance of becoming pregnant by doctors Deborah discovered she was pregnant and gave birth to her son this year

My Website:  You Can Get Pregnant Over 40 Naturally (getpregnantover40.com)

 I frequently post articles about women who conceive not only in their 40's, but in their mid to upper 40's.  This article titled "IVF and the great lie about fertility and the over-40s..."from the Daily Mail in the UK couldn't have said it better...there is this "great lie" going on about how "infertile" women in their 40's are.  People run to fertility clinics without giving their bodies time to get ready to conceive. 
This article talks about a number of women who conceived and had a baby well into their 40's:
From the article:

When I did meet a man and he asked if I wanted a baby, I laughed. Surely he knew I was far too old?  Then, at 45, my periods stopped. Assuming I had reached the menopause, I carried on with daily life, irritated that I was putting on weight.
It wasn’t until someone commented on my new cleavage that it occurred to me to take a pregnancy test. I had been so brainwashed into believing that I was too old for motherhood that I had not used contraception. I took four home pregnancy tests — all positive — before I made an appointment to see my GP.
Despite a trouble-free pregnancy, I could sense a feeling of caution whenever I went for a scan or a check-up, as if my pregnancy were a freak accident that was bound to end in tears. In fact my daughter, Deia, was born healthy and well in May 2004. And it seems my experience certainly isn’t unusual.

1/4 Of Couples Failing IVF Conceive Spontaneously

If you've tried and failed at IVF like I did, it may not be the end of the story.   This study found that 24% of couples who fail IVF conceive naturally and 17% of couples who get pregnant with IVF conceive another child naturally.  It goes to show that the diagnosis of "infertility" isn't always accurate.  Read more:


From the article:

To get a better sense of how frequently people going through IVF end up having babies without extra help, Troude and her colleagues collected information on about 2,100 couples who had begun fertility treatment in France in the early 2000s.
About 1,300 of those couples successfully ended up having a baby through IVF.
Eight to 10 years later, the couples responded to a survey about whether they'd had a child on their own following fertility treatment.
Among the parents who'd had a baby through IVF, 17 percent later had another child without assistance. And among couples who originally failed to have a baby with fertility treatment, 24 percent went on to have one from a spontaneous pregnancy...

...Troude said unexplained infertility could be a good sign for couples' chances of having a baby, compared to those who have a clear reason for not initially getting pregnant.
Evers said the findings "reassure (couples) that it is not the end not to conceive by IVF, especially not if they have unexplained infertility."
Another recent study found that among couples who hadn't been able to get pregnant after a year or more of trying, 44 percent of those who opted against fertility treatment still ended up having a baby eventually (see Reuters Health story of February 2, 2012).

15 Facts About Sperm

Here is an interesting and fun article about all the things you may not know about sperm. I learned a few new things from reading this article by Craig Niederberger and CBS news:

Craig Niederberger MD

From the article:

Sperm vs. Semen

Some people use the terms sperm and semen interchangeably. But sperm cells are only one component. Semen also contains substances from the prostate and a pair of rabbit ear-shaped organs inside the pelvis called the seminal vesicles.

Sperm cells - which are made in the testicles - need lots of high-octane fuel to whip their tails. Lucky for them (and us), sperm get the fuel they need in the form of sugar fructose, which is supplied by the seminal vesicles.

Fluid from the prostate contains chemicals that cause semen to liquefy once it's inside the female. Without it, sperm would be locked in place and unable to swim.
