Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

Serving the Greater Miami Area

Many women experience heavy menstrual bleeding at some point in their lives. But for one in four women, every cycle is heavy—and that’s not normal. Doctors call this condition “abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB)” or “menorrhagia.”

When is heavy menstrual bleeding too heavy?

Although every woman experiences her period differently, most doctors define a normal, healthy period by a few standard criteria.

Normal bleeding:

  • Occurs about every 25–31 days
  • Lasts 4–5 days
  • Totals 2–3 tablespoons

Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB):

  • Can last longer than 7 days
  • May require frequent change of protection, or double protection
  • May include large blood clots in your flow
  • May cause tiredness, fatigue or shortness of breath (symptoms of anemia)

Is abnormal uterine bleeding limiting your activities?

Take control of your periods.

New guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists suggest that if heavy periods and irregular menstrual cycles negatively impact your life and you believe they’re a problem, you should talk to your doctor.

At Women & Teens Healthcare, we offer the solution by providing you with “Her Option in-office Cryoablation therapy” that is almost pain-free and takes approximately 30 minutes to perform. It is a unique choice for women with AUB who are seeking a minimally invasive alternative to a hysterectomy. Her Option reduces or eliminates menstrual periods in most women. This treatment can free you from the limitations and pain associated with heavy periods without the need to remove your uterus or disrupt your natural hormones.

In a clinical study it was determined that 94% of Her Option Office Cryoablation Therapy treatments were successful. In addition, patients who undergo the treatment often report a reduction in PMS symptoms, such as fatigue, irritability and cramping. Furthermore, the treatment should not change your desire for, or your enjoyment in, sexual activity.
