Minerva is generally a good treatment option for women who are pre-menopausal and in good overall health, but who suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding. Dr. Sejour can help you decide if endometrial ablation is right for you.

Endometrial ablation with Minerva is a simple in-office treatment. In fact, the procedure generally takes less than five minutes from start to finish. There’s no need for general anesthesia.

During the procedure, Dr. Sejour guides the device into your uterus through the cervix. Minerva uses thermal energy to permanently destroy the lining of your uterus. Once the lining is ablated, bleeding during your menstrual cycle is reduced or eliminated.

Follow Dr. Sejour’s guidelines for recovery. Common side effects during recovery include cramping, mild pain, or nausea. You can expect to return to your normal daily activities within a few days.

Minerva is a safe, effective procedure to treat heavy menstrual flow that interferes with your daily life. In one study, 72% of women had their periods completely eliminated about one year after treatment with Minerva.

It’s possible to get pregnant after endometrial ablation with Minerva, but it’s not recommended. If you want to get pregnant in the future, talk to Dr. Sejour about other options for treatment.

You don’t have to suffer through painful, heavy periods every month. It’s time to learn more about endometrial ablation with Minerva.
