NovaSure endometrial ablation—a one-time, five-minute procedure!
This one-time five-minute procedure is designed to remove just the uterine lining—the endometrium—which is the part of your body that causes heavy bleeding. No incisions are required, leaving your uterus intact. For 9 out of 10 women, their heavy periods are dramatically reduced or stopped altogether.2
How the NovaSure procedure works
Your doctor opens your cervix (the opening to your uterus) slightly, inserts a slender wand and extends a triangular-shaped netted device into your uterus.
The netting expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus.
Precisely measured radiofrequency energy is delivered through the netting for about 90 seconds.
The netted device is pulled back into the wand, and both are removed from your uterus.
Important Safety Information
NovaSure endometrial ablation is for premenopausal women with heavy periods due to benign causes who are finished childbearing. Pregnancy following the NovaSure procedure can be dangerous. The NovaSure procedure is not for those who have or suspect uterine cancer; have an active genital, urinary or pelvic infection; or have an IUD. NovaSure endometrial ablation 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. If you or someone you know has possibly experienced a side effect when using our product, please contact your physician.
