In addition to procedures such as labiaplasty in Chicago, Cyroblation of the Endometrium treats heavy periods in pre-menopausal women who have decided not to have any more children.
What is Cyroablation?
This procedure is incredibly safe and effective, with the entire procedure taking up only about an hour on average. This procedure minimizes heavy menstrual bleeding and menorrhagia by the removal of the inner lining of the uterus. Techniques used depend on what the doctor decides, but the most effective and painless option is cyroablation. This procedure freezes the tissue at subzero temperatures to destroy the endometrial lining.
3-4 Weeks Before
The patient seeking this procedure needs to perform a urine pregnancy test 3-4 weeks beforehand and sign a consent for treatment at this time. This prevents any danger of hurting a fetus if the woman has unknowingly conceived prior to treatment. It takes a few weeks for pregnancy signs to show, so this step is incredibly important to the process. Arrangements for transportation need to be made if there will be administration of sedatives.
The patient should arrive 30 minutes to an hour before her visit for any vaginal or labia surgery. It is recommended that she eats a light meal 30-45 minutes before going into surgery. This will provide nourishment for her body and minimize discomfort due to hunger pains following the procedure. Before Cyroblation, the patient needs to drink 16 ounces worth of water before she arrives for a full bladder. The recovery period for cyroablation includes post-operative cramping and up to four weeks of watery discharge. Final results can be observed at six months.
