If you are suffering with heavy bleeding or pelvic pain, you already know it interferes with your enjoyment of everyday activities. Fortunately, new treatment for heavy bleeding is available in Alabama that offer relief and a viable alternative to hysterectomy.
Heavy menstrual bleeding treatment begins with a thorough diagnosis to pinpoint the cause of your condition. As a board-certified ob/gyn, Dr. Billue offers a full range of diagnostic testing. He believes the best course of pelvic pain or heavy bleeding treatment begins with your understanding of all the medical options available to you. Based on your test results and your reproductive preferences, he will then recommend the treatments that can offer lasting relief from pain or heavy bleeding, including minimally invasive procedures.
Endometrial ablation is a safe, effective treatment for heavy monthly bleeding or heavy bleeding between periods that can be performed in an outpatient setting. There are no incisions and minimal downtime. Many women can return to normal daily activities in just a day or two. Women who undergo endometrial ablation sometimes experience very light periods, or no periods at all. In addition, endometrial ablation often helps reduce the pain associated with heavy monthly bleeding.
In some cases, hysterectomy is the most prudent course of treatment for heavy bleeding. Dr. Billue offers the latest surgical techniques that minimize the discomfort, downtime and recovery following hysterectomy. Vaginal hysterectomy is a much less invasive approach than traditional hysterectomy. There is no large incision and women are often able to get back to normal activities in days, not weeks.
In some cases, laparoscopic surgery is more appropriate. While more invasive than vaginal hysterectomy, this method requires only tiny incisions so the recovery time is shorter and scarring is minimized. Dr. Billue will thoroughly discuss the best treatment options with you.
