Benefits of Mara Uterine Ablation
Understanding Abnormal Bleeding
Abnormally heavy periods, also known as Menorrhagia, affects many women. These heavy periods often negatively affect day-to-day living. Some common side effects of menorrhagia are interrupted sleep, disrupted sex life and medical concerns such as painful cramps, anemia, iron deficiency, and more.
What is Mara Uterine Ablation?
Mara Uterine Ablation is a Water Vapor Ablation System. Natural water vapor is used to seal the blood vessels in the endometrial lining of the uterus. Uterine ablation with Mara is minimally invasive and scientifically proven to work. There is minimal or no downtime. Some women choose to return to work after having their MARA endometrial ablation, others choose to rest at home for the day. This treatment is not suitable for those who wish to become pregnant.
How does Mara Work?
Mara treatments typically take less than fifteen minutes. Your gynecologist inserts a probe into the uterus. Balloons are inflated to seal off the uterus, cervix, and top of the vagina. After additional safety checks, the probe releases heated water vapor to seal the blood vessels in the uterine lining. Natural water vapor utilized in the Mara System gently conforms to each woman’s unique anatomy for safe, easy, and effective treatments.
How Mara Compares
The Mara Water Vapor Ablation System is just one of many endometrial ablation treatments available. The alternatives include freezing or cryoablation, a heated balloon, radiofrequency, electrosurgery, and hot water. Mara Endometrial Ablation is the only treatment for uterine ablation that uses gentle, conforming water vapor.
