Heavy Periods


There is help for your heavy periods. 

If your periods are making you miserable,  you’re not alone. One in five women struggles with heavy bleeding, long periods and intense  cramping. But the good news is treatment is available to help restore your life. Endometrial ablation is a great option for women whose  periods are interfering with activities of daily  living. The procedure, which is often performed in your doctor’s office, uses either a heated  saline solution or a wire with an electrical  current to treat the lining of the uterus.

It can  reduce menstrual flow and related symptoms by 75 percent – and many women won’t have a period at all after the procedure. If your period  is interrupting your life, ask your doctor about endometrial ablation. To learn more about  Stillwater Medical Group OB/GYN clinicians  who offer this procedure, call 651-439-1234.
