The NovaSure procedure is a quick, safe, simple, one-time endometrial ablation treatment. This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding by using energy to remove the lining of the uterus. The average treatment time is about 90 seconds 1, and only needs to be performed once to lighten or stop your periods. No pretreatment drugs are required and NovaSure can be performed in the hospital or in your doctor's office.
Without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy, NovaSure has a quick recovery time so you can get back to your life sooner. Most women experience no pain after the procedure, and can return to work and regular activities the next day.
With more than 500,000 patients treated to date, NovaSure is proven safe and successful. A clinical trial has shown that more than 9 out of 10 women return to normal or lower than normal bleeding levels following treatments with NovaSure. For many women, their periods even stopped completely.
Many women also experienced a reduction in PMS and painful periods, as well as other benefits such as less anxiety, greater self-confidence, and a boost in energy. NovaSure clinical trial post treatment survey results reveal,
Many women find that treatment with NovaSure frees them up to enjoy more of what life has to offer. According to the NovaSure clinical trial post treatment survey, 4 out of 5 women report spending more time at work and daily activities and missing fewer social and athletic events because of heavy bleeding.
A half a million women to date have chosen NovaSure to reduce or eliminate their heavy periods and improve their quality of life. Women are very pleased with the results of the NovaSure procedure; 97% say they would recommend NovaSure to other women.
More women are choosing NovaSure because it has been shown to be safe, simple, and successful.
NovaSure uses radio frequency (RF) energy to permanently remove the lining (endometrium) of the uterus, which reduces or eliminates future bleeding. Here's a look at what happens during the procedure to help you know what to expect:
Your doctor will slightly dilate the cervix and insert a slender wand through the cervix into the uterus.
The doctor then extends the triangular mesh array through the wand where it expands to conform to the dimensions of the uterine cavity.
RF energy is then delivered into the uterus for approximately 90 seconds.
The triangular mesh array slowly retracts and the wand is gently removed from the uterus. Want to know more? Request a brochure!

It is important to know that although the chances for pregnancy are reduced following an endometrial ablation procedure, it is still possible to become pregnant.
However, pregnancy following endometrial ablation is very dangerous for both the mother and the fetus. You should not have an endometrial ablation if you think you want to have a baby in the future. After an endometrial ablation, you should use some form of birth control. Please discuss these issues with your physician.
