At age 45, Monica was tired of heavy periods that always seemed to interfere with her work and exercise plans. After she had her second baby, she began having even more flow and cramps during her periods. She tried birth control pills and other hormones, but nothing seemed to work.

Monica sought help from Loch Haven OB/GYN. Her Loch Haven physician performed an exam and discussed several options with Monica. She decided that an endometrial ablation, which removes the lining of the uterus without an incision, was the best option. With her busy work and home schedule, she was pleased to find out that the Loch Haven practice offers this procedure in the office. After she had the procedure, her husband drove her home and she was back to her normal schedule the next day. Although not all women who have this procedure will have the same results, Monica is thrilled to report that she has not had a period in more than 7 months since her ablation procedure.

Heavy menstrual bleeding can be very bothersome. Ask your Loch Haven doctor which options would work to help you with this problem.
