Some are intended for hospital use and may cause significant discomfort when performed in a doctor’s office. Her Option™ was designed with your comfort in mind. It was specifically developed and approved for office use. That means your doctor performs the therapy in the familiar setting of your regular clinic. The treatment requires minimal anesthesia-no IV or surgery. Many women even return to their normal activity level by the next day.

What can Her Option™ do for you?
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 destroy the endometrium. With the endometrium reduced or eliminated, there’s less tissue to shed each period. The result? Dramatically less menstrual bleeding.
Cryoablation-a proven ablation technique
Cryoablation is a time-tested treatment with proven success in treating many medical conditions. Gynecologists are very familiar with the therapy and all its possible applications.
Other ablation processes work through energy or heat. Cryoablation uses sub-zero temperatures to reduce or eliminate the uterine lining. The natural analgesic effect of these low temperatures reduces patient discomfort during the procedure. Plus, ultrasound guidance during the procedure lets your doctor monitor the therapy as it happens, offering an additional level of safety.
Cryoablation offers additional long-term benefits, including:
- minimal scarring (this feature may help your doctor identify future issues more quickly)
- improvement of pain and mood related to PMS
