Feeling bloated is a common problem for women around the time of their period.
Bloating is the feeling of swelling and overdistension of the abdomen caused by excessive fluid retention in the intestinal walls. This excessive fluid retention and bloating relate to a neuroactive peptide emitted by the degenerating endometrium prior to the period.
Women complain that their clothes are too tight, their rings don’t fit, and their tummies stick out, only to return to normal after the period. Advanced Endometrial Ablation eliminates the underlying cause of the premenstrual fluid retention and bloating. Women will sometimes say that the week after the period is their only normal-feeling week in the month! After Advanced Endometrial Ablation, every day of the year is free from painful bloating and fluid retention.
Clinton Ashford, MD, and Rebecca Ashford, MD, at The Ashford Center in Athens, Georgia are experts in Advanced Endometrial Ablation, a minimally invasive procedure that can eliminate premenstrual bloating as well as other premenstrual and menopausal symptoms.
