Abnormal Uterine Bleeding
If you are one of the 10 million women suffering from abnormal uterine bleeding1, perhaps polyps or fibroids are to blame. Abnormal uterine bleeding can include prolonged bleeding, irregular bleeding or even post-menopausal bleeding. This can be caused by many different reasons including polyps and fibroids. Polyps and fibroids both grow inside the uterine cavity; polyps typically cause bleeding in between periods while fibroids are more likely to cause heavy bleeding and prolonged periods.
Previously, treatment may have been a hysterectomy, which required the removal of the uterus. Another procedure used was an electrical instrument, which could burn normal tissue as the polyp or fibroid was removed. With the TRUCLEAR Procedure, your doctor can remove polyps or fibroids while keeping your uterus intact – something important to all women.
Be sure to discuss your symptoms and your treatment expectations with your doctor. As with any procedure, you will need to talk to your doctor for more information about the potential risks of this procedure and whether it is right for you.
