Premenstrual Headaches

Of the many symptoms of PMS, premenstrual headaches may be one of the most debilitating. Premenstrual headaches are those that pop up in days leading up to the beginning of your period. Varying in severity, these headaches may feel typical, or as intense as migraine attacks. Nearly half of our patients tell us that they have severe migraine headaches prior to their periods.

What Causes Premenstrual Headaches?

Premenstrual headaches are likely caused by a neuropeptide toxin emitted from the degeneration endometrium just before the period. Getting rid of the endometrium will remove this toxin transmission, and will stop the headaches for good. Advanced Endometrial Ablation will take care of the root of the problem, preventing it from happening.

Premenstrual Headaches Treatments

Advanced endometrial ablation may help reduce or eliminate premenstrual headaches and other symptoms of menopause by gently removing the hormonally active lining of the uterus. This 90-second procedure is pain-free and minimally invasive. Advanced endometrial ablation can decrease or remove hot flashes, as well as a host of other symptoms women face.

Commonly Asked Questions

How can Advanced Endometrial Ablation help with bloating?

Have you ever heard of a man complaining of bloating? Rarely, if ever. The reason is that most of the sensation that causes women to complain of “bloating” is caused by a neuroactive peptide from the shedding endometrium that triggers bowel edema (swelling within the wall of the intestine).

Some women say that they even have to wear different clothes in the premenstrual time frame or that they gain 5-10 pounds of “water weight”. Advanced Endometrial Ablation at The Ashford Center stops premenstrual bloating by gently removing the lining of the uterus, which means no more periods or bloating! If there is no endometrium to break down, then the neuropeptide toxins that are the culprit causing these troublesome symptoms are gone altogether!!

Dr. Clint Ashford is a pioneer and a leading expert in Advanced Endometrial Ablation, having performed thousands of these procedures with consistent and successful results that can be truly life-changing for women with this problem.

Advanced Endometrial Ablation is a safe and pain-free solution for women suffering from PMS symptoms such as bloating, as well as difficult, painful, or heavy periods.

Does alcohol and caffeine contribute to bloating?

Experts believe that both alcohol and caffeine do, in fact, contribute to bloating. Consider drinking extra water on the days leading up to your period.

Why do periods cause bloating?

The primary cause of bloating is hormones. PMS begins during the luteal phase of your menstrual cycle. The hormones estrogen and progesterone will fluctuate, and the lining of your uterus gets thicker.

When should you see a doctor?

If you are experiencing bloating that does not go away after your period and/or if it is severe enough to affect your daily life.

How does Advanced Endometrial Ablation stop heavy periods?

Advanced Endometrial Ablation is the only procedure besides a hysterectomy that permanently stops heavy periods. The procedure is quick, simple, gentle, and performed under light sedation so you can get back to normal activities the next day.

An expert in Advanced Endometrial Ablation, Dr. Clint Ashford has extensive experience using a variety of FDA-approved techniques, including thermal energy, cryotherapy (freezing), and radio-frequency energy to safely remove the endometrium.

Once the ablation procedure is performed, most patients NEVER have another period, while a smaller number have significantly lighter periods--maybe a day or two of spotting from time to time.

Note: Advanced Endometrial Ablation is a permanent procedure. It is only appropriate for women whose childbearing is complete.

If you suffer from problems with your periods, call The Ashford Center or book an appointment online today.

After Endometrial Ablation, will I ever have another period?

85% of our patients never have another period. The remainder may continue to have a day or two of spotting from time to time, especially if they have fibroids.
