Excessive bleeding during your period can be very troubling when it occurs.  It is a leading cause of elective hysterectomy.  In many cases, heavy menstrual bleeding can be relieved without resorting to a hysterectomy or hormone treatments.

The Women's Wellness Place offers minimally invasive procedures to control excessive bleeding that can be done in our office.  One of those options is the Her Option Cryoablation, which uses sub-zero temperatures to reduce or eliminate excessive menstrual periods.  The cold temperatures thin the uterine lining, which leaves less tissue and decreases menstrual bleeding.  After resting at home, many women are able to resume normal activities the next day. 

Her Option is not recommended for everyone.  You will need to be evaluated by your doctor to find out if it is right for you.  You will not be a candidate if you intend to become pregnant, use an IUD, suffer from uterine cancer, an active urinary tract infection, pelvic inflammatory disease, or if you have certain types of uterine abnormalities.  There is the potential for thermal injury to adjacent organs.  Every medical treatment has risks and complications.  Talk to your doctor.
