If you’re suffering with heavy menstrual bleeding, then consider NovaSure® Ablation. This procedure takes no more than five minutes to complete, and you don’t have to undergo special treatments beforehand.
You can undergo the procedure during any part of your cycle, and it’s even available while you’re bleeding. In 2001, the procedure was approved by the FDA, and over time, it has helped thousands of individuals.
The purpose of NovaSure® Ablation is to alter your uterine lining, which is called the endometrium. This is the part of your body that is responsible for heavy bleeding.
The procedure is quick, easy and doesn’t require any incisions. Your uterus is left intact, and you can enjoy a dramatic decrease in heavy periods. Some patients have said that their heavy periods completely stopped!
How NovaSure® Works
During the first step of the procedure, we must open your cervix slightly and insert a slender wand. A special device is extended into your uterus, and the netting is designed to expand.
Once it has expanded, the netting conforms to the shape and size of your uterus. The next part of the procedure consists of passing precise radio frequency energy through the netting, which lasts for about 90 seconds. After the procedure is finished, the device is removed from your uterus.
Are You a Candidate for NovaSure®?
NovaSure® Ablation is designed for premenopausal women who have heavy periods. If you experience heavy periods that are the result of benign causes, then this could be a great solution for you. This procedure is ideal for women who’re finished childbearing because it can make pregnancy dangerous.
The Benefits of NovaSure® Ablation
Since it’s a one-time procedure, you don’t have to deal with several follow-up treatments. You’ll also like that it’s quick and relatively comfortable. The entire procedure takes no more than five minutes, and it doesn’t require general anesthesia.
After undergoing NovaSure® Ablation, 90 percent of women returned to normal or light periods, and some women stopped having periods altogether. Statistics show that the procedure is well-tolerated and effective, and it shouldn’t take more than a day to feel normal again.
