Change your life in 90 seconds!

Change your life in 90 seconds!  Innovations to Women’s Health Care which have stood the test of time and revolutionized the world of menstrual management are widely available to cycling women.

For those needing contraception and struggling with heavy and / or painful periods, the Mirena intrauterine device provides a solution for both.  It takes less than two minutes to insert via a straw that goes through the cervix into the uterus.  In women who have never been pregnant a smaller version, Skyla, provides the same benefits.  Fertility is restored immediately with removal of the device.

Endometrial ablation has been developed over the last 30 years.  Many methods are available, but one of the safest and most reliable is the Novasure which uses electrical current through a fan shaped mesh to destroy the uterine lining. It is not a form of contraception.  And it sometimes “fails” if the uterus develops fibroids or adenomyosis after the procedure.  The procedure can be done in the office and takes about 90 seconds to complete.

Those suffering from heavy menses have many options including Mirena and Novasure.  Make an appointment at Women’s Health Care if you would like to see if you are a candidate for either solution.  503-435-2020.
