Heavy Periods

If you suffer from heavy periods we can help you. We can perform a procedure called an endometrial ablation that can significantly lighten or eliminate you periods altogether.

One in five women live with very heavy periods. Periods that get in the way of everyday life. Periods that keep you from the people you love and the things you enjoy. Endometrial ablations are one-time, 5-minute procedures that can lighten - or end your heavy period - without on-going pills and without hormonal side effects. For over 90% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped.

This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding by using energy to remove the lining of the uterus. The average treatment time is about 90 seconds, and only needs to be performed once to considerably lighten or stop your periods altogether. No pretreatment drugs are required and it does not have the side effects of hormones.

Most women experience no pain after the procedure, and can return to work and regular activities the next day. With thousands of patients treated to date, Endometrial ablations are proven safe and successful.
