A Pill for Period Problems

September 09, 2011

For women who suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding, a new birth control pill may be the medical fix they've been hoping for. In a multicenter study of 190 women, menstrual flow was completely normalized in 44% of participants taking Natazia, compared with just 4% of those who were given a placebo. "If you're healthy, of normal weight, and don't smoke, this pill may be a way to avoid surgery," says lead author Jeffrey Jensen, MD., of Oregon Health & Science University. "What's more, you'll know within one or two cycles if it's going to work for you."
