Heavy bleeding (menorrhagia) during your menstruation may be your body's way of indicating something is wrong. Heavy bleeding is a frequent complaint of Dr. Caroline Conner's Fountain Valley, CA patients. If you have to change your pad or tampon every hour, experience fatigue with cramps, anemia, or pass blood clots when using the restroom, our team is here to help you find answers and solutions.

A thorough examination to figure out the root cause of heavy menstrual bleeding is necessary. Heavy bleeding can be caused by unbalanced hormones, growths in the uterus, endometriosis, hypothyroidism, pelvic inflammatory disease, kidney or liver dysfunction, and more. Menorrhagia can also be one of the indicators of precancer or cancer of the uterus, cervix, or ovaries. It is important to have this checked out by Dr. Conner. There are several treatment options available, such as medication, intrauterine devices, ablation techniques, or surgery.

After an examination and assessment of your symptoms, Dr. Conner will make recommendations for treatment. Some of the medical interventions she may recommend include:

  • Hormone-releasing oral medications
  • Hormone-releasing intrauterine devices (IUDs)
  • Ablation
  • Surgery

Hormone-releasing medications can decrease heavy bleeding by causing the uterus to develop a thinner lining, which means there's less to shed at the end of the cycle. Ablation or cryoablation techniques with cold or heat energy can also decrease the thickness of the lining of the uterus. When all other treatment options fail, Dr. Conner may suggest minimally invasive surgical procedures to treat excessive menstrual bleeding.

I’ve been to my fair share of BioTe physicians for HRT since 2014.  I’m so glad I cross paths with Dr. Conner because she goes above and beyond the service other physicians I’ve had.  She is extremely knowledgeable in HRT and takes in consideration the patients symptoms not just the tests.  In my HRT journey I have met more Dr’s that don’t know what they are doing than do and Dr. Conner is a breath of fresh air.  Her staff is professional and amazing.  Mercedes (her assistant) took care of all my needs and made sure to follow up with me so I know what the next step always was.  I will definitely be referring Dr. Conner’s HRT treatments to all my friends and look forward to my next office visit!

Dr. Conner is full of knowledge and truly cares to have her patients succeed when it comes to having a baby. My  husband and I are extremely grateful for her support and guidance during our baby journey.  She has taken her time with us and explains all the details. I would highly recommend her to family and friends when looking for a OBYGN.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Dr. Conner.

I’ve been to a few different doctors for testosterone therapy and Dr Connor is by far the best and most knowledgeable in the industry. Definitely would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Connor and Mercedes are very knowledgeable and professional. I never had to wait in the lobby for my appointment, they were always on time. I have been to many Dr offices where I feel I am rushed. They spent as much time as we needed to make sure all my questions were answered. We highly recommend.
