Resolve to live without abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) in the new year

It’s a new year, and as we look to make a fresh start in 2022, let’s focus on the things we can control—and in the process, change our lives for the better.

Specifically, let’s focus on AUB—also known as heavy periods or heavy uterine bleeding (HUB).

Whatever you call it, if you’re one of the many women living with AUB, you know the impact it has on your life. Restricted activities, painful cramping, disrupted sex life, exhaustion…we could go on and on. But what’s the alternative? Hormones or a highly invasive hysterectomy?

Actually, there is another option. One that lets you take control over AUB without pills or a hysterectomy.

Put an end to your AUB
NovaSure® endometrial ablation is a procedure designed to leave your uterus intact by removing just the uterine lining—the endometrium—which is the part of your body that can cause heavy periods.

It is ideal for women who are finished having children and want a quick solution to ending their AUB.1

If this sounds like you, keep reading (because it gets better).

NovaSure endometrial ablation does not use hormones, takes only 5 minutes, and can be done right in a doctor’s office. There are no incisions and many women return to normal activities the next day. Plus, the procedure has been used and trusted by doctors for over 15 years.1

Take control
So come on, do this for yourself. You deserve to go into the new year in control of your health. Make 2022 the year you stop living with AUB—and really start living without it. Ask your doctor about your AUB treatment options and whether the NovaSure procedure could be right for you. Your doctor will also explain the benefits and risks of endometrial ablation and other treatment options.

Important Safety Information

NovaSure endometrial ablation is for premenopausal women with heavy periods due to benign causes who are finished childbearing. During a NovaSure procedure, a trained gynecologist inserts the NovaSure device through your vagina and then treats the uterine lining—the endometrium. Because pregnancy following the NovaSure procedure is still possible and dangerous, it is important to talk to your doctor about birth control or permanent sterilization following the procedure. The NovaSure procedure is not for those who have or suspect uterine cancer; have an active genital, urinary, or pelvic infection; or an IUD. As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks including but not limited to internal injury, infection, and complications related to anesthesia. Temporary side effects may include cramping, nausea, vomiting, discharge, and spotting. This information is not medical advice. Please discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor to find out if the NovaSure procedure may be right for you.
