Her Option is an in-office procedure designed to treat heavy periods
Her Option® was specifically developed to minimize patient risk and maximize patient comfort. Dr. Bartley performs the therapy in the comfortable setting of his office. The treatment requires minimal anesthesia—no IV or surgery. Many women even return to their normal activity level by the next day.
How it Works
Each month during your period, you shed your uterine lining (endometrium). This shedding process is what causes normal menstrual flow.
Her Option® Office Cryoablation Therapy is a safe and effective ablation procedure that uses sub-zero temperatures (cryoablation) to reduce your heavy periods to normal levels.
The cold temperatures thin the endometrium. With the endometrium reduced or eliminated, there’s less tissue to shed each period. The result? Dramatically less menstrual bleeding.
Cryoablation uses sub-zero temperatures which means that the natural analgesic affect of these low temperatures reduces patient discomfort during the procedure. Plus, ultrasound guidance during the procedure allows Dr. Bartley to monitor the procedure as it happens, offering an additional level of safety.
