Cerene is a safe and effective treatment to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding. The treatment uses cooling technology to remove the uterine lining (endometrium) in premenopausal women. As monthly shedding of the endometrium causes menstrual blood flow, removing the lining of the uterine cavity can result in reduced or no menstrual bleeding.
Cerene does not require sedation or general anesthesia, and it can be performed in the comfort and familiarity of your gynecologist’s office.
Cerene is for premenopausal women who have heavy periods due to benign causes that interfere with the quality of their daily lives. Cerene is also only for women who no longer want to have children. Please consult with your doctor to see if Cerene is right for you.
Heavy menstrual bleeding is a common problem that affects about 1 in 5 women.1 It’s most likely to start between the ages of 30 and 40, but some women experience heavy menstrual bleeding from an earlier age. If you soak your sanitary protection (pads or tampons) more than once an hour, your bleeding may be excessive. You may also feel weak, tired, and have no energy, making it difficult to work, exercise, and be socially and sexually active.
Cerene is performed in the comfort of your doctor’s office and most patients report returning to their activities within 24 hours after the treatment. The actual treatment time is only 2.5 minutes (as part of a 7-minute total time including insertion, safety checks, and removal).
Cerene is FDA approved. It was studied in a FDA pivotal clinical study that showed it is safe and effective in treating heavy periods due to benign causes in premenopausal women for whom childbearing is complete. No serious device-related adverse events were reported.
Please refer to the Patient Labeling for complete information on Cerene, including risks and benefits and to understand if Cerene is right for you.
