What are the benefits and risks?

Many women who've had the NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure say they are now able to spend more time at work and participate in more social and athletic outings now that they no longer suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding. They also report improved energy levels, better moods, and a boost in self-confidence. Many women had a significant reduction in painful periods and PMS symptoms like irritability.1
