Surgical Procedure Stops Your Period

Often I feel we deserve medals for dealing with the cramps, crying spells, and other delights that accompany that time of the month. Some women even have to deal with heavy bleeding that lasts more than 10 days.

To control the bleeding without using birth control pills, women can now opt for a surgical procedure called endometrial ablation, which takes about 90 seconds. It burns cells in the lining of the uterus, and afterward 75 percent of patients never menstruate again, with the remainder experiencing light spotting once a month. Your hormonal fluctuations remain, since the procedure just prevents or minimizes the bleeding. Watch the video from MSNBC below to learn more.

Tell me, would you ever consider this procedure?
