In brief: Options
Depending on your age and fertility plans there are lots of treatment options.
Mirena (levonorgestrel) iuds usually minimize your periods. Taking birth control pills, NuvaRing or the patch continuously without taking the placebo pills or skipping a week can stop your period. The depoprovera shot often stops periods. If you are done with pregnancies ask if you are a candidate for an endometrial ablation.
