Heavy Periods? You’ve Got New Options (Video)

Don’t agree to hysterectomy without research

Women whose heavy periods interfere with work, social activities or exercise need to see a doctor. If no serious problem is found, new treatments can drastically reduce bleeding and make life much easier. Hysterectomy is not the only solution. Depending on what is causing the issue, your doctor might recommend tranexamic acid, an over-the-counter remedy, or a progestin intrauterine device: Levonorgestrel IUD.
