The topic of excessive menstrual flow confronts us again and again. Women often suffer from this after giving birth and when reaching the age of 40. This kind of strong or prolonged menstruation is also called menorrhagia or hypermenorrhea. At the very least, it leads to lost time at work and a feeling of weakness. Some patients, however, are skeptical when it comes to regulating their flow with hormones or an intrauterine device (IUD) with progesterone.
An alternative and elegant therapy without hormones is available, following your last child: endometrial ablation with NovaSure. In a short procedure, under light anesthesia, the mucous membrane in the uterus, which is responsible for menstruation, is destroyed. By ablating this inner layer of the uterus (also called the endometrium), menstruation will cease or become very weak.
Due to the fact that the mucous membrane, or endometrium, does not produce hormones, your hormonal balance is unaffected.
