Treatment for Heavy Menstrual Bleeding at PGOMG
Heavy menstrual bleeding or, Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB), is something most women will experience during their lives. However, for some women, AUB is a monthly occurrence that disrupts their daily routines and falls in the category of “abnormal.” For menstrual bleeding to qualify as “heavy”, patients will find that they often experience periods that last longer than seven days, large blood clots in their flow, a need for heavier/double protection, and symptoms associated with anemia. A patient who is familiar with these issues on a monthly basis will have options at PGOMG for care and treatment, such as:
- Hormone therapy
- Endometrial Ablation
These treatments vary in approach and level of invasiveness. PGOMG providers will take the appropriate time discussing options with patients depending on the severity of their heavy menstrual bleeding. This typically includes underlying health issues, and if the patient intends for a pregnancy in their future.
