Many women who are done having children but have not experienced menopause yet still struggle with menstrual issues such as bleeding and pain. Luckily there are treatment options out there! Dr. David Young from Revere Health joins Fresh Living to share his advice.

For women struggling with menstrual issues, there are a few main options:

1. Medications such as birth control or IUDs.

2. Hysterectomy.

3. Uterine ablation.

Dr. Young says there are pros and cons to all choices, and that not all women are candidates for each option. For example, a woman with a family history of breast cancer may not want to use hormonal contraception. And while a hysterectomy does give the most permanent solution to bleeding, it also requires a longer recovery, and the risk of infection does exist.

Uterine ablation is a great option because it doesn't require taking hormones until menopause and allows women to avoid the long recovery from a hysterectomy. A uterine ablation procedure also takes 2 minutes or less and pain is usually gone within 12-24 hours!

For more information, go to to find Dr. Young or an OBGYN near you.
