What is Heavy Menstrual Bleeding?
When you suffer from heavy bleeding (menorrhagia) each month during your menstrual cycle, you may need to reach out to an experienced gynecologist for answers, like our board-certified gynecologist, Dr. Otto Huertas, in Dallas, TX. Many women are unsure why they have such heavy periods and contend with living with this condition month after month. Heavy periods are more common than most people realize, and we're here to help at CosmeticGyn Center in Dallas, TX. Women who experience heavy bleeding during their periods also tend to endure bouts of fatigue, anemia, and menstrual cramps throughout their cycle. Blood clots may pass during this time, too. If you're experiencing these symptoms, you should discuss them with your doctor. For almost two decades, Dr. Huertas has diagnosed and treated thousands of women with menorrhagia who have trusted him with their care. He is also available to care for you and invites you to make an appointment with him at our office in Dallas, TX.
"Dr. Huertas is a very kind and knowledgable doctor. I’m very happy to have found him. He does biodentical hormone replacement and other cosmetic procedures that most gynecologists don’t do. He also takes most insurance options. 5 stars!!! 👏👏👏👏👏"- A.M. / Google / Mar 25, 2021
"I had a great experience with Dr. Huertas and his staff. He preformed 360 lipo on me and I’m now 1 day post op. I had a massage done with an independent massage therapist and they raved about my first day results! I will update this if anything changes. I would recommend this doctor!"- C.O. / Google / Jan 28, 2021

Our Treatment Options for Menorrhagia
After an examination and assessment of your symptoms, Dr. Huertas will make recommendations for treatment. Dr. Huertas specializes in treating the full range of your female medical needs with the safest, least invasive, and most effective methods available. Some of the medical interventions he may recommend include:
- Hormone-releasing oral medications
- Hormone-releasing intrauterine devices (IUDs)
Hormone-releasing medications can decrease heavy bleeding by causing the uterus to develop a thinner lining, which means there's less to shed at the end of the cycle. Ablation or cryoablation techniques with cold or heat energy can also decrease the thickness of the lining of the uterus. When all other treatment options fail, Dr. Huertas may suggest minimally invasive surgical procedures to treat excessive menstrual bleeding.
Your Follow-up Appointments
In order to monitor your treatment and document your progress, Dr. Huertas will schedule follow-up appointments with you. We want you to make satisfactory progress even with the least invasive interventions; otherwise, Dr. Huertas can make adjustments to his approach so that you get the care you deserve.
