Endometrial Ablation (NovaSure®)
NovaSure® Endometrial Ablation is a one-time, 5-minute procedure that gently removes the lining of the uterus. The procedure is designed to leave your uterus intact by just removing the lining – the endometrium – which is the part that causes the bleeding. The NovaSure® procedure can reduce or stop bleeding altogether. It’s less invasive than hysterectomy, and avoids the potential side effects of hormones.
Why is Endometrial Ablation Performed?
In our 30s and 40s, as women approach menopause, we’re more likely to develop abnormal menstrual bleeding. Unfortunately, having heavy periods means a lot more than simply heavy bleeding; heavy periods can wreak havoc in our lives. According to studies, they can take a physical, social and emotional toll.
NovaSure® endometrial ablation is ideal for women who are finished having children and want a quick solution to ending their heavy periods. For 77.7% women, their heavy periods are dramatically reduced or stopped altogether. And when you choose NovaSure® endometrial ablation, you’re in great company. To date, two-plus million women have been treated with the NovaSure® procedure.
