This is a very common problem that affects about 1 in 5 women. The signs of heavy bleeding are most likely to start between the ages of 30 and 40. Many women also say that excessive menstrual bleeding makes it difficult to work, exercise, and be socially and sexually active. You may also feel weak, tired, and have no energy.
If heavy periods are making it difficult for you to live a normal life, Minerva may be the answer for you. The Minerva Treatment is a one-time, safe, effective, quick and complete procedure that can reduce heavy bleeding. The treatment can be done at your Minerva Specialists clinic, without making incisions or using general anesthesia that puts you to sleep.
The Minerva Treatment can be done at any time during the menstrual cycle. It is a 3 to 4 minute treatment that can be done in your doctor’s office, and you do not need to be put to sleep (general anesthesia). Clinical studies tested the Minerva System and the following benefits were found.
Not Based on a Head-to-Head Study. Data from “Intent-to-Treat” populations at 1 year follow-up from Clinical Trials results in the Summary of Safety and Effectiveness Data on file at www.FDA.gov for Minerva®, Her Option®, HTA® System, and NovaSure®.
The Minerva System works by treating the endometrium (tissue lining of the uterus) with heat. This tissue is the source of heavy bleeding in women who have not reached menopause. Minerva is only for women who do not want to have children in the future.
