Endometrial Ablation

In-office solutions for heavy periods & excessive bleeding

In the past, women who experienced heavy periods and excessive bleeding (menorrhagia) were usually advised to undergo hysterectomy surgery, a procedure with life-changing consequences. But our highly experienced gynecological surgeons and staff believe you deserve options, which is why we perform an innovative, minimally invasive alternative to help stop the excessive bleeding and discomfort of heavy menstrual periods.

Fast, less invasive & much easier on you

Endometrial ablation is a safe, quick procedure that can resolve excessive menstrual bleeding with minimal discomfort or downtime. It involves no incisions, hormones or inserts, takes only minutes and is performed just once. With endometrial ablation, we use heat to carefully remove the lining of the uterus. This greatly reduces – or eliminates – the severity of the menstrual cycle while leaving the uterus intact. In addition to being much easier on you than hysterectomy surgery, this outpatient procedure is more private and more convenient.

In-office procedure can reduce costs

For most patients, endometrial ablation can be done in the office with mild sedation. Downtime is minimal – most women are able to return to their normal activities within a day or two. Because it removes the lining of the uterus, endometrial ablation is only for women who are sure that they don’t want to become pregnant in the future. Highly reliable birth control is necessary for the rest of a woman’s childbearing years. Whether endometrial ablation or another minimally invasive heavy bleeding treatment option is right for you, we’re dedicated to providing the best solution for you and your lifestyle. After endometrial ablation, many women experience very light, shortened periods while others report having no periods at all. Instead of a week, your period might last a day. In addition, endometrial ablation often helps reduce the pain associated with heavy periods.

No more unplanned pregnancies with Essure®

We offer permanent female birth control without tubal ligation surgery.

Instead, it takes about 10 minutes and it helps the body block the fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy. The Essure procedure has been trusted by women and physicians since it was first introduced in 2002.

Best of all, Essure gives you peace of mind. Your Asheville Women’s Medical Center gynecologist specialist will confirm when you can rely on Essure for permanent birth control.
