If heavy periods are making it difficult for you to live a normal life, Minerva may have the answer for you. The Minerva treatment is a one-time, safe, effective, quick, and permanent procedure that can markedly reduce heavy bleeding. The treatment can usually be done in our office without making incisions or using general anesthesia that puts you to sleep.
The Minerva System works by destroying the endometrium (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.
