Endometrial Ablation

 

NovaSure is a quick, safe, and simple procedure to lighten or stop your periods, without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy. NovaSure Endometrial Ablation is a one-time, 5-minute procedure that gently removes the lining of the uterus. The NovaSure procedure can reduce or stop bleeding altogether. About one third of all patients who undergo the procedure achieve complete amenorrhea, while the other two thirds most often experience a lessening or lighter flow. The procedure is done in the office with little to no anesthesia. The NovaSure probe is inserted into the uterus and a gentle radiofrequency is applied. This radiofrequency removed the lining of the uterus and it takes about 5 minutes to do. Immediately after the NovaSure procedure, some women may experience some cramping, mild pain, nausea, and/or vomiting. Most women feel back to themselves and can resume normal activities within a day or so. A watery or bloody discharge following the NovaSure Endometrial Ablation procedure is normal. In a clinical study, 12 months after the NovaSure procedure 95% of patients were satisfied with the results and 97% said they would recommend NovaSure to a friend.
