Cerene® Treatment Helps Women Suffering from Heavy Periods

Cerene® Treatment Helps Women Suffering from Heavy Periods

In the U.S. alone, about 10 million—or about 1 in 5 women—suffer from heavy periods annually which can lead to diminished quality of life, loss of productivity, and increased healthcare expenses1. However, with more than a third of women seeking care for the condition each year1, please know that you are not alone and there are highly effective treatments available that can help you get the relief you need today.

One such solution is The Cerene Treatment. Cerene is designed to provide relief from your heavy periods, getting you back to a life controlled by you, not your period.

More information about Cerene and how to talk to your doctor about your treatment options is below.

What are heavy periods?

Heavy periods are often referred to as heavy menstrual bleeding or menorrhagia. Symptoms of heavy periods may include1:

● Bleeding that lasts more than 7 days

● Soaking more than 1 pad/tampon every hour

● Needing more than 1 pad/tampon at a time

● Changing your pad/tampon during the night

● Having a menstrual flow with quarter-sized blood clots (or larger)

● Constant pain/cramps in the lower part of the stomach during periods

What are my treatment options?

There are several different treatments for heavy periods currently available that range from non-surgical options like, hormone therapy, to hysterectomy, a major surgery with risk of significant complications. Endometrial ablation has emerged as an increasingly popular treatment for women suffering from heavy periods due to its effectiveness and the fact that it provides a minimally invasive alternative to hysterectomy. Many of the endometrial ablation treatments currently on the market are typically performed in hospitals or surgery centers with general anesthesia.

Endometrial ablation works by destroying a thin layer of the uterus so unlike hysterectomy, it does not require removal of the uterus. The recovery time for endometrial ablations is minimal compared to hysterectomy and while some women may still have periods after the procedure, they are typically much lighter.

What is The Cerene Treatment?

The Cerene Cryotherapy Device provides an endometrial cryoablation treatment designed to significantly reduce heavy period bleeding and cramping so you can get back to enjoying life. Performed in the comfort and familiarity of your doctor’s office, Cerene’s cooling technology works by providing a natural pain-relieving effect during treatment so that general anesthesia is not required.

The treatment results speak for themselves:

● 90% of patients had normal, light or no periods*

● 90% of patients were satisfied after Cerene*

● 91% of patients reported no or slight limitations in life activities*

● 92% of women said their pain level was at or below the acceptable median pain score during treatment

*Patient-reported data are 1 year after treatment with durable results at 3 years.

Is Cerene right for you?

Cerene is for premenopausal women who have heavy periods due to benign causes that interfere with the quality of their daily lives. Importantly, Cerene is also only for women who no longer want to have children.
