NovaSure® Ablation Procedure
Novasure Ablation is performed in Dr. Erhard’s state-of-the-art outpatient procedure suite. Dr. Erhard will place numbing medication around the cervix, then gently dilate the cervix so that it is slightly open. A slender wand is inserted through the cervix into the uterus. Once inside the uterus, a triangular mesh will expand to fit into the size and shape of your uterus. Once the device is safely in place, Dr. Erhard will activate the ablation process to deliver radio frequency energy, which is a precise energy that is delivered through the mesh to the lining of the uterus for about 90 seconds. When 90 seconds is completed, the wand and mesh will be gently pulled back and removed from the uterus and cervix. That’s it! You’re done!
NO BLEEDING + NO HORMONES + NO SURGERY + NO DOWNTIME = HAPPY LIFE!

Is NovaSure® right for me?
Women with heavy or long-lasting periods who do not wish to have children in the future may be candidates for the NovaSure procedure. Your doctor can help you decide if NovaSure is right for you. But if you’re sure you don’t want any children in the future, and your doctor rules out more serious causes of heavy bleeding, you may be a good candidate for the NovaSure procedure.
Can I become pregnant after NovaSure?
Yes. While NovaSure® reduces your chance of becoming pregnant, it is not an effective form of birth control.
How difficult is the recovery from the NovaSure procedure?
It’s not uncommon for women to experience mild cramping, pain and nausea immediately after undergoing NovaSure. However, most women resume work and other activities the next day.*
