It is estimated that nearly 10 million women suffer from menorrhagia (excessive monthly bleeding). This often results in anemia (low blood count), fatigue and cramping, missed days at work, and social embarressment due to soiling clothes. Treatment options range from medication to surgical intervention. Endometrial ablation (novasure) is one surgical option that is an outpatient procedure resulting in the destruction of the uterine lining. Over 90% of women successfully control their monthly bleeding without hysterectomy. Contact your healthcare provider to discuss individual treatment options today.
