NovaSure® Endometrial Ablation

What is the NovaSure® Endometrial Ablation?

NovaSure® endometrial ablation is a quick, safe, and simple procedure to lighten or stop your periods, without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy.  It is a one-time in-office procedure that works by removing the endometrium, or the lining of the uterus (the part that causes the bleeding), with a quick delivery of radiofrequency energy. This procedure is also referred to as a uterine ablation. 

Why choose the NovaSure® procedure for your heavy period?

  • Safe: No pills. No hormonal side effects.
  • Effective: It has been effective for 90% of women; menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped.
  • Quick: NovaSure® endometrial ablation is a one-time, five-minute procedure that can be done in your doctor’s office, usually for the cost of your copay.

Not all women are candidates for NovaSure® Endometrial Ablation Procedure

Your doctor will explain the risks of all treatment options. NovaSure® endometrial ablation is for premenopausal women with heavy periods due to benign causes who are finished childbearing. Pregnancy following NovaSure can be dangerous. NovaSure® uterine ablation is not for those who have or suspect uterine cancer, have an active genital, urinary or pelvic infection or an IUD. NovaSure® is not a sterilization procedure.  Rare but serious risks include but are not limited to thermal injury, perforation, and infection. Temporary side effects may include cramping, nausea, vomiting, discharge, and spotting.
