Myomectomy

This preserves the uterus but it can mean the baby has to be born by caesarean section. There can be a risk of uterine rupture during pregnancy and the birth, endangering the life of the mother and the baby.

Uterine embolization

Although this preserves the uterus, it can alter both the blood flow to the uterus and ovarian function, affecting the placenta and the child’s growth. It is not recommended for women who wish to have children.
