Heavy menstrual bleeding, or prolonged, painful menstrual cycles should not be considered normal! They can take a physical and mental toll on the women who suffer from them each month. The women who experience this may feel nauseated, tired, experience bad cramping, and suffer from headaches. They may avoid sex, miss social or athletic events, and feel anxious, depressed or moody during this time. The NovaSure procedure can help alleviate these symptoms and help you get your life back!
NovaSure is a one-time 5 minute procedure that can be done right in your doctor’s office. It works to remove the endometrium (the tissue lining the uterus) that sheds each month and causes heavy bleeding. Your doctor will open your cervix slightly, insert
a slender wand into the uterus, and extend a mesh device which fits to the size and shape of your uterus. The ablation procedure uses measured radio frequency energy that is delivered to the uterus for about 90 seconds. This procedure works to remove the endometrium which in turn helps reduce the amount of menstrual bleeding a woman will experience monthly. Not only can the NovaSure procedure help reduce the amount of heavy bleeding a women faces, but can also help women regain confidence, return to social activities, and even see a reduction in painful periods and PMS symptoms.
Because the procedure is performed without incisions, or anesthesia, recovery is quick. Most women experience little or no pain, and are able to return to their usual activities within a day and report an almost immediate reduction of monthly menstrual bleeding.
