Period Problems (Menstrual Disorders)

Heavy periods cause major disruption to a woman's working and social life by causing fatigue, tiredness, pain and anaemia. There can be accidents and embarrassment.


Management of heavy periods (can regular or irregular) has come a very long way and it is no longer a case of hysterectomy for everyone. There are a variety of safe and effective treatments including Mirena®, Novasure® endometrial ablation and Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. Around 3 out of 10 women end up needing some form of treatment for their heavy periods.

Anil will discuss the investigation and treatment options with you so that care can be tailored to your individual needs and wishes. Where a hysterectomy is considered, all the pros and cons are discussed including the options of preserving the Cervix and the Ovaries and talking about the Fallopian tubes. The options as above are discussed in detail without medical jargon as they can be confusing, including different recovery times, success rates, side-effects and possible complications.

  • Do you go off your gut feeling? I do, and I had to push my way through the health system to get answers and failed along the way. Until I met Dr. Sharma and all my issues made sense. A very clear, focused, caring Doctor/ Surgeon that listens and explains very clearly on what is the best outcome is for your health issue. I had a hysterectomy, I'm 50 and without his skill and experience I would have never recovered from my surgery so quickly. From pre-surgery, recovery, home recovery to complete recovery I was guided by Dr. Sharma and his nurse to allow for the best result possible from a surgery that I feared would change my life forever. Well it did and for the better! I'm 6 weeks post surgery back to my active life, feeling well and happy. I have much to be grateful for and so will you. Oh, and even though scars are part of your life story you may be concerned of those, Dr. Sharma considers those too and they are tiny! I know and have seen other post surgery clients who used someone else and the scars are very different to mine, much worse. A bit silly to focus on something so minute since good health means everything no matter the scar it leaves behind. Thank you Dr. Sharma

  • I cannot thank Dr Sharma and Anne enough for their kind, compassionate and life-saving care. Anne went out of her way to find me an appointment when I was in a bind. Dr Sharma was amazing from the get-go, listened to my concerns, thoroughly explained my situation and immediately provided me with top notch medical care. I will forever be grateful.

  • I couldn't recommend Dr Anil and his receptionist more highly 😊 I was very worried about what I needed done and I was reassured and relaxed with a very smart, caring and funny doctor. Thank you so much you really put me at ease.

  • Dr Anil Sharma is incredible, and he is a wonderful surgeon. I really appreciate how he took his time to explain about advanced endometriosis and the treatment options. With his wealth of Knowledge and information, I immediately felt at ease – and felt assured in my receiving expert medical care from him. In addition, Anne his nurse is always very helpful and an email away. I had such a fear about going through this whole procedure as I have heard of many positive and negative feedback from others. Even, through my own experience I went to Dr Shrama for second opinion as my first surgeon delayed my surgery and she recommended that I take zoladex injection in the interim. I felt that it was a blessing in disguise that my surgery was postponed by my first surgeon or else I would have never found Dr Shrama. He discussed my condition with another specialist- Dr Rishi Ram who was amazing as well. Dr Sharma and Anne directed me right from pre-surgery, to recovery either at the hospital or at home. I am so glad I chose Dr Anil Sharma and his co surgeon Dr Rishi Ram and I would highly recommend to anyone.
