Endomyometrial Resection (EMR) vs. Endometrial Ablation (EA)
Heavy Bleeding, Menstrual Disorders, Treatment of Uterine Fibroids & Polyps
Some women breeze through their monthly periods with few symptoms—their periods are like clockwork, beginning and ending at nearly the same time of each month. Other women, experience a host of physical and emotional symptoms that include:
- Heavy or irregular bleeding
- Incapacitating cramps
- Sleep disturbance
Many women find that they have to plan social engagements around their periods while others are forced to use an occasional “sick day” as they are unable to get out of bed because of heavy vaginal bleeding, pain or both. Fortunately, most menstrual disorders are benign—they’re not caused by cancer and do not cause life-threatening hemorrhage. Often, however, the symptoms can be overwhelming and need to be evaluated. We offer more information on causes of heavy, painful menstrual bleeding right here on our site.
There are many treatment options for menstrual bleeding and cramps available today that were unavailable in your mother’s generation. The first and most important step is to discuss your symptoms with your health care professional so she or he can accurately diagnose your condition and help you choose the best way to help.
At the Center for Menstrual Disorders, we focus on minimally invasive options to treat your problems. We try and individualize your treatment precisely to your needs. We have pioneered minimally invasive techniques since 1988 and we try and develop a plan that fits with your problem, your life-style and your expectations. This is not a “one size fits all” approach. Instead our focus is on the approach that might work best for you.
