Cervical Ablation Procedure for Heavy Periods

Get relief from heavy periods with a cervical ablation. Also known as endometrial ablations, this gynecological procedure removes the uterine lining from the uterus, thus preventing the uterus from bleeding in the future. A cervical ablation is an ideal option for women who do not wish to become pregnant in the future.

What is a Cervical Ablation?

Women can get treatment for heavy periods with an endometrial ablation procedure (also known as a cervical ablation). Many women begin to experience heavy and / or irregular bleeding in their 30s and 40s, as they begin to get closer to menopause. Heavy periods can take a physical, social, and emotional toll as well.

Thermachoice® is a soft, flexible balloon that a doctor inserts in the uterus (womb) as part of the endometrial ablation procedure to treat the endometrium, the lining of the uterus. It is an effective, non-hormonal heavy period treatment. It involves a minimally invasive, 8-minute procedure that can be performed in our office or in a hospital.

Thermachoice® is intended to treat premenopausal women with heavy bleeding (due to benign causes) who do not wish to become pregnant in the future. This process removes the primary source of menstrual bleeding and is a preferred choice for many women who experience heavy bleeding during their periods.
