How it works

Soft, flexible coils are placed into each fallopian tube. During the first three months the coils work to form a tissue barrier blocking sperm.

Painful Periods

Less painful periods have now become a reality. An 8-minute treatment performed in your physician’s office can end years of heavy, painful periods.

The obstetricians and gynecologists at The Iowa Clinic are now performing Gynecare Thermachoice – Treatment for Heavy Periods Uterine Balloon Therapy, a procedure to help women suffering from heavy periods to avoid a hysterectomy.
