Learn About NovaSure

Have you been quietly suffering through painful periods and heavy menstrual bleeding? It is a common frustration among many women in their 30’s and 40’s. It can have a dramatic effect on your mood and leave you feeling depressed, anxious and lacking in confidence.

Heavy bleeding can also cause headaches, cramps and rob you of daily energy. It can also have an impact on your professional and personal schedule as it can cause missed work days and cancellations of social engagements.

What is NovaSure and How Can It Help Me?

NovaSure is today’s most advanced solution for women who are experiencing heavy bleeding. It is a 5 minute procedure performed in the office and can have a dramatic impact by either minimizing or completely stopping the bleeding altogether.

It is also referred to as NovaSure Endometrial Ablation (or EA) and has been used for the treatment of over 1 million women with heavy bleeding issues around the country.

Some of its most recognizable and celebrated benefits include minimum downtime, simple office procedure of 90 seconds and effective results.

How Does it Work?

Watch this short video which describes this very simple procedure in more detail. A safe and precisely measured radio frequency energy is released into your cervix through a small wand. It removes the endometrium which is the uterus lining where the bleeding occurs.

Who Should Have the NovaSure Procedure and Who Should Avoid It?

If you are a woman experiencing heavy bleeding and it is affecting the quality of your life in any respect, you should consider the NovaSure EA. However, it is designed for women who do not plan to have more children as it can reduce your ability to get pregnant as well as present a danger to the future development of the fetus.

If you are in your prime child-bearing years, it is best to consider other available and effective solutions.
