Your doctor slightly dilates your cervix, inserts a slender wand, and extends a triangular-shaped netted device into your uterus.

STEP 2

The netting expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus.

STEP 3

The NovaSure procedure uses radiofrequency to ablate the endometrium. During the procedure, precisely measured radiofrequency energy is delivered through the netting for about 90 seconds.

Is the

Procedure Right for Me?

Reclaim Your Life

Having a NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure is one of the easiest ways that can reduce or eliminate heavy bleeding to dramatically improve your quality of life—and free you to do all the activities you love. See how Janelle got her life back.

When considering a procedure like NovaSure endometrial ablation, it is important for you to understand and consider all the other treatment options available to you.

First and foremost, you must be absolutely sure you do not want to have any children in the future. Your uterine lining is removed during an endometrial ablation procedure. This is the area in your body where the bleeding originates—and it’s essential for nurturing the growth of a fetus.

It is important to know that it is still possible to become pregnant after a NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure. Pregnancy after endometrial ablation is very dangerous for both the mother and the fetus so before you have the NovaSure procedure, be sure to talk with your doctor about contraception options.

What You Can Expect

This simple, safe procedure can be done right in your doctor’s office. You can have the procedure any time during your cycle—even during your period! Here’s what you can expect before and after the NovaSure procedure.

Before

If the procedure is being performed in your doctor’s office, he or she may administer a local anesthetic into your uterus (through your cervix). No general anesthesia is required, so you will probably be awake throughout the procedure.

After

Before leaving your doctor’s office, you’ll receive specific discharge instructions. These may include the following:

Most women report little or no pain and are able to return to their regular activities within a day. However, call your doctor if you have abnormal discharge, increased pain, fever, or any other symptom you’re concerned about.

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.
