Hi a year ago I was in a very similar situation. Fibroids were causing me so many problems, pain and terrible blood loss. After much consideration I opted for the UAE and whilst it was not as pain free as the doctors make out, I have no regrets at all. I now have a 3 day v light period, no clotting or pain. I wish I had it done sooner, rather than put up with the fibroids for so long. If you want further detail on the procedure / how I felt afterwards let me know. The actual procedure itself is painless, but afterwards it is pretty painful for a few weeks (bad period pains) and tender for a few months (well I was) but it was so worth it and I feel for myself it was the right decision v the other options offered.
