Sonata Fibroid Symptom Relief in Cincinnati
Sonata treatment is a clinically proven incisionless procedure that helps provide fibroid symptom relief in Cincinnati. Fibroids of different types, sizes and locations are located using ultrasound waves and treated via a handpiece that is inserted through the vaginal canal into the uterus. When a fibroid is found, the handpiece delivers radiofrequency energy to shrink the fibroid over time & help reduce symptoms.
Following the Sonata procedure, 50% of treated women resumed their regular activities within one day, while the average time for return was around two days.
Fibroid Symptom Relief
Fibroid-related symptoms often involve extended and distressing menstrual periods that extend beyond a week, accompanied by sensations of discomfort in the abdomen, lower back, and pelvic area. Menstrual bleeding can become heavy, necessitating pad or tampon changes every 2-3 hours. The impact of these fibroids can differ based on their consistency, size, and positioning within the uterus, potentially leading to abdominal bloating that can be mistaken for pregnancy. Additionally, fibroids may contribute to anemia, challenges in achieving pregnancy, painful intercourse, heightened frequency of urination, and gastrointestinal issues.
The Sonata Incisionless Procedure can help women address symptoms of fibroids that may be interfering with their daily lives.
