NovaSure Endometrial Ablation (EA) is a simple, one-time, five-minute procedure that has treated over one million women without hormones or hysterectomy.
It's estimated that heavy menstrual bleeding affects 1 out of every 5 women - that's about 10 million women! Many women begin to experience heavy and/or irregular bleeding in their 30's and 40's, as they begin to get closer to menopause. Heavy periods take a physical, social and emotional toll as well. NovaSure is a procedure that can lighten or end your heavy period. No pills, no hormonal side effects. For 90% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped. Some benefits of the NovaSure procedure are:
- One-time procedure
- The procedure is quick- it usually takes less than five minutes.
- It can be performed in a doctor's office with no general anesthesia
- Most women are back to their normal activities within a day or so
- There are no incisions
- It can be performed at any time during your cycle
This is a permanent removing of the endometrium, or lining of the uterus, with a quick delivery of radio frequency energy. NovaSure should not be considered if you are planning on getting pregnant in the future.
