In a medical breakthrough, the FDA has approved the first non-surgical oral medication for heavy bleeding due to fibroids.
AbbVie and Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc announced that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved ORIAHNN with a treatment duration of up to two years. It’s an oral medication that is advertised to help people manage heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids. It’s a combination of elagolix and E2/NETA (estradiol/norethindrone acetate) to help achieve a balance between the reduction of heavy bleeding and associated hypoestrogenic side effects, which can include hot flashes, bone loss and headaches. Heavy and painful periods don’t just take a mental and physical toll on you, it can also make going about your day to day life incredibly difficult.
The results of the two, randomized Phase three clinical trials for ORIAHNN, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, found that seven out of 10 women no longer experienced heavy menstrual bleeding versus one out of 10 women on the placebo. Researchers also found that ORIAHNN reduces heavy menstrual bleeding due to uterine fibroids by 50% within the first month of use.[Source]
If heavy bleeding due to uterine fibroids is one of symptoms you are dealing with, ORIAHNN may be a solution for you to consider. This is a prescription medication available at the end of June 2020.

…hot flushes, headache, fatigue, and irregular vaginal bleeding. The drug label includes a Boxed Warning about the risk of vascular events and thrombotic or thromboembolic disorders.[Source]
