Dare to wear white… Imagine freedom from heavy monthly bleeding?
An alternative to hormones or hysterectomy. In about 90 seconds you can
permanently reduce or eliminate a messy period.
Most women with heavy periods (menorrhagia) don’t know that recurrent
heavy bleeding is not normal — it is a recognized medical condition
that afflicts 1 in 6 women worldwide. Many women think that bleeding heavily
for consecutive days or changing their pad every hour is something they
have to live with. Consequently, they tolerate their period limiting their
participation in daily activities. Others are afraid that the only options
are hormones or a hysterectomy.
Heavy menstrual bleeding can be treated simply, safely and successfully.
The doctors at Women’s Health Specialists will help you come to
a treatment decision by assessing the amount and frequency of your bleeding
and by looking at how your periods affect your life. Several factors will
be important to your decision, including whether or not you plan to have
children in the future and whether you want ongoing therapy or a one time
Treatment options include hormones—like birth control pills, the
Mirena IUD, and increasingly endometrial ablation. Hysterectomy should
be reserved only for situations where these conservative interventions
have failed. While hormones can be effective, it does require you to use
them day in and day out until menopause, which averages around 51 years
old. The Mirena IUD can be inserted into your uterus in about the time
it takes to perform a PAP smear, and lasts for 5 years before it needs
to be replaced.
Now with the one-time NovaSure® endometrial ablation procedure, women
can finally obtain reliable relief from heavy menstrual bleeding safely,
and in about 90 seconds. Clinical studies report that over 90% of women
are satisfied with their results—half experience lighter periods
and the other half never have a period again. We give women the option
of having their endometrial ablation at the outpatient surgery center,
or under local anesthesia in the convenience of our office. NovaSure®
lets women take control of their lives and return to their normal routines
the following day.
