Heavy Periods

Heavy, prolonged periods affect quality of life, attendance at work, social events and sexual relationships.

Previously, hysterectomy was the most common treatment option for this condition.  Over the years, many other treatment options have evolved that do not require major hospitalization.  Rhett Women’s Center offers office based diagnosis and treatment options for heavy periods that do not require hospitalization or prolonged recovery.

We offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment including:

  • Pelvic Ultrasound
  • Endometrial evaluation with hysteroscopy and uterine sampling
  • Endometrial ablation
  • Hormonal treatment
  • Hysterectomy
  • We can do all of this except hysterectomy in our accredited office based surgical center with a board-certified anesthesiologist.  Most women are back to their normal activities the next day.
