This is a clinical registry of an FDA approved device system called the Genesys Hydro ThermAblatorTM (HTA) system (Boston Scientific). The HTA system's intended use is to be inserted, by a trained physician, into the uterus, where it will fill and circulate fluid that is warm enough to change the characteristics of the uterine lining. This is done with the anticipated result of improving menstrual bleeding symptoms.

The purpose of this FDA-mandated registry is to obtain clinical experience on the use the Genesys HTA™ system, under normal clinical conditions, and document its safety and technical reliability.
