Patient Yvette Foy is grateful to USA Fibroid Centers for providing an option to treat her fibroids and father her first child.
NORTHBROOK, IL, UNITED STATES, March 18, 2023 /einpresswire.com/ — usa fibroid centers Ambassador and host Shay Johnson talks with UFE patient Yvette Foy and USA Fibroid Centers Medical Director, Dr. Aaron Shiloh on her successful pregnancy after UFE treatment on Monday, March 20 at 7 p.m [EST] on her Instagram Live show: A Day with Shay.
Foy, who was treated at the US Fibroid Centers office in Philadelphia, PA, said she was originally advised to have a hysterectomy. “But I wanted to get pregnant,” the 37-year-old explained. I think when I had fibroids I didn’t get pregnant because the tumors were too big.’
Instead, Foy underwent a minimally invasive fibroid treatment called uterine fibroid embolization (ufe). This advanced treatment can help relieve painful and uncomfortable fibroid symptoms while keeping the uterus intact.
Foy is joined by Dr. Shiloh, medical director at USA Fibroid Centers, which has more than 40 centers nationwide. Dr. Shiloh, MD, is board certified in both radiology and interventional radiology and has performed Foy’s UFE. In addition to his expertise in minimally invasive image-guided treatments, such as uterine embolization of fibroids, he has extensive experience performing surgical and interventional oncology procedures.
“Fibromas can sometimes cause fertility problems and even complications during pregnancy or childbirth,” said Dr. Shiloh. “We advise patients who have or suspect fibroids to get screened and consider treatment before becoming pregnant.”
The important fact that Dr. Shiloh wants to focus on is that many of his patients become pregnant after UFE treatment.
Johnson, best known for her appearances in music videos and reality TV shows like “Love and Hip-Hop Miami,” hosts a “Day With Shay” on the USA Fibroid Centers Instagram account. The IG event focuses on raising awareness of fibroids, which are benign tumors that affect millions of women. Shay, who has battled fibroids, regularly hosts day-long events that give her followers the opportunity to get more personally involved and learn about fibroids and other health topics.
The ‘Day With Shay’ Instagram Live is a free event and will be broadcasted on the usa fibroid centers instagram site. Visit or call 855-615-2555 to learn more about fibroids, symptoms, and treatment options.
