thermablate-girlMenorrhagia is the most common type of abnormal uterine bleeding, as well as the leading cause of iron deficiency anemia in women.
Symptoms of anemia include weakness, headaches, depression, tiredness, vulnerability to cold and poor concentration levels.
Menorrhagia may be caused by benign uterine growths such as fibroids or polyps, infections or chronic illness; however, in the majority of cases no organic cause can be identified.

As with any medical condition, it is best to discuss available options with your physician. Your doctor will consider such factors as your age, overall health and medical condition, in order to determine whether Thermablate EAS is the best solution for the treatment of your heavy menstrual periods.

Do you feel like your life revolves around your periods?

Hheavy-menstruationeavy menstrual bleeding affects 1 in 5 women and can have a negative impacton their life.

Heavy menstrual bleeding, known medically as menorrhagia, affects women physically and mentally. It can affect your mood, energy, work, social life and your general well-being.

Approximately one half of all cases of heavy menstrual bleeding have no obvious cause. In other cases, the possibility of uterine abnormalities or hormonal imbalances may exist. Other physical problems may also cause menorrhagia and might include uterine fibroids or polyps, infection, cancer, or a bleeding disorder.

  • Menstrual periods lasting longer than one week
  • Symptoms resembling anemia or feelings of fatigue

What is Thermablate?

How do we treat menorrhagia?

Menorrhagia can be treated nonsurgically or surgically.

Nonsurgical options:

Drug therapy (birth control pills or other types of hormones) or intrauterine devices are typically the first treatment option for women who wish to maintain fertility. It is not always effective in controlling excessive bleeding and some women may experience side effects.

Surgical options include:

Dilatation and curettage: a procedure that removes endometrium and may provide temporary relief of heavy periods lasting only a few cycles. This may be a treatment option for women who want more children.

Hysterectomy: is the removal of the uterus and is a major surgical procedure. It is performed in a hospital under general anesthesia. It may require hospitalization and a recovery period of up to six weeks.

Hysteroscopic endometrial ablation: eliminates the lining of the uterus with an electrosurgical tool or laser. This requires general anesthesia and is also associated with increased surgical risks. This is not appropriate for women wanting to maintain fertility. Risks may include: uterine perforation, bleeding, infection and heart/lung failure due to fluids required in the procedure.

New minimally invasive endometrial ablation methods: there are a variety of new generation endometrial ablation devices that use different methods to destroy the lining of the uterus. These include heated fluid systems and radio frequencyenergy systems. Endometrial ablation allows for fast recovery with return to normal activities within a few days. Risks are reduced compared to other surgical methods and may include uterine perforation, bleeding, infection, cramping, vaginal discharge, injury to other organs, or burns.

All methods carry risks, although they are reduced inless invasive methods. The method of treatment used will be dependent upon your individual circumstances and should be discussed with your doctor.

If you wish to maintain fertility, endometrial ablation, by any method, is not an option for you.

Thermablate is a clinically proven, gentle two and a half minute treatment that can significantly reduce or stop the flow of your menstrual period.

Thermablate is:

  • A safe, minimally invasive treatment for menorrhagia
  • An alternative to hysterectomy or other surgical treatment
  • A well tolerated outpatient treatment requiring no hospital stay
  • Effective: in studies comparing various treatment options, 95% of women reported the greatest improvement in menorrhagia with Thermablate with 85% of them experiencing a dramatic or complete reduction in bleeding

Is the Thermablate treatment right for me?

The Thermablate system is used in premenopausal women with menorrhagia due to benign causes for whom child bearing is complete.

Your physician will do some preliminary tests which may include blood work, hysteroscopy, biopsy, and/or a Pap smear to determine the cause of your bleeding.

How does Thermablate work?

uterusThe treatment can be done in an outpatient clinic or the operating room depending on whether you want to be awake or fully asleep.

The doctor will gently insert a soft, flexible silicone balloon attached to a thin catheter into your uterus.The balloon is inflated with heated glycerin solution and expands to fit the size and shape of your uterus.

You and your physician will decide what type of pain medication will be best for you to relieve cramping and discomfort.

After the Treatment

Your physician may prescribe medication if you experience some discomfort such as cramping. Other symptoms you may experience are nausea and vomiting.

Patients will normally be allowed to go home within a few hours.

You can normally resume work and family commitments the following day. It is typically recommended you refrain from sexual activity and the use of tampons for one week after the treatment in order to reduce the risk of infection.

A Thermablate treatment does not prevent you from becoming pregnant. Pregnancy after any type of an ablation treatment can result in serious health complications. Please discuss contraception options with your physician.
