Every woman must deal with monthly periods for the majority of her lifetime. It’s simply part of being a woman. However, you may be one of those people who has a difficult time with every period. Your cramping may be so intense that you actually have to lie down when it is at its worst. You may also experience an extremely heavy flow that lasts for days. Heavy periods are known as menorrhagia. If you soak sanitary products by the hour or find yourself getting up in the middle of the night to change tampons and pads, you know what it’s like to deal with this problem. Large clots of blood may be a part of your period as well.
You may also have a period that lasts longer than the typical five to seven days. Not only is such heavy bleeding a nuisance, but it could also make you anemic. You can lighten the flow of your heavy menstruation with NovaSure® ablation.
Understanding NovaSure® Ablation
NovaSure® ablation, also referred to as NovaSure® endometrial ablation, is a minor procedure that can help you to have more manageable periods. It can lighten your menstrual flow or may even cause your period to stop completely. The procedure focuses on removal of the endometrium. This is the part of your uterus known as the lining, and it causes your monthly bleeding.
Our doctor can perform this procedure in the office. The first step involves opening your cervix. At that point, a surgical tool that resembles a wand is inserted into your uterus. It contains netting that is released inside the uterus. This netting will expand until it fits your uterus. Radiofrequency energy will be released.
Finally, the netting is withdrawn into the wand and the wand will be removed. When it comes to future periods, they should be much lighter.
Why Choose NovaSure® Ablation?
With NovaSure® ablation, you may be able to avoid more involved procedures, such as hysterectomy. You can also stay away from hormone pills and undesirable side effects. NovaSure® ablation is recommended for women who are approaching menopause or who have heavy periods and no longer plan on having children.
