Many women wait years to seek treatment for abnormal uterine bleeding – or heavy periods, despite the fact that 1 in 5 women are affected.2

MISSING OUT?

Women with abnormal uterine bleeding miss 1.5 days of work/school every cycle, and more than 60% of women say it causes them to miss social events.3

If getting your period means missing school or work, or multiple weeks of planning against leaks and a heavy flow, it’s time to talk to your doctor about a solution. Don’t wait – a period that negatively impacts your life is one that needs to change.

ABOUT THE NOVASURE PROCEDURE

What is NovaSure endometrial ablation?

The NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure is a one-time, five-minute procedure designed to remove just the uterine lining—the endometrium—which is the part of your body that can cause heavy bleeding.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

1
Your doctor slightly dilates your cervix, inserts a slender wand and extends a triangular-shaped netted device into your uterus.
2
The netting expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus.
3
The NovaSure procedure uses radiofrequency to ablate endometrium. During the procedure, precisely measured radiofrequency energy is delivered through the netting for about 90 seconds.
4
The netted device is pulled back into the wand, and both are removed from your uterus.

Benefits and Risks

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 think the NovaSure procedure might be right for you, view a summary of the risks and considerations and talk to your doctor.
