Feel Free to Enjoy Life Again
Heavy menstrual bleeding is not normal and can be treated effectively through a procedure called an endometrial ablation. This innovative and minimally invasive procedure offers a quick, safe, and simple way to lighten – and possibly stop, heavy periods. The endometrial procedure addresses the issue of heavy bleeding without the use of hormones or the risks associated with hysterectomy.
Heavy Bleeding Under Control
If you are experiencing heavy bleeding and your family is complete, ask your Woodlands OBGYN doctor if uterine ablation is right for you. Below are some simple questions to help you decide if NovaSure and Minerva endometrial ablation is for right you:
- Does your period affect your quality of life?
- Are your periods heavy or do they last longer than 5-7 days?
- Would your quality of life improve if you could decrease or potentially eliminate your heavy periods?
- Do your heavy periods affect your social, athletic or sexual activities or cause you to miss work?
- Do you change protection frequently or carry large quantities of feminine products and/or a change of clothes?
- Do your heavy periods cause anxiety, or pain?
