NovaSure endometrial ablation is a one-time, five-minute procedure.

NovaSure endometrial ablation is a one-time, five-minute procedure that can safely and effectively reduce or eliminate heavy menstrual bleeding (another term used for abnormal uterine bleeding).

It is quick, safe and minimally invasive. The endometrial ablation procedure is designed to remove just the uterine lining—the endometrium—which is the part of your body that can cause heavy periods. No incisions are required, leaving your uterus intact. For women who are finished with childbearing and want relief from heavy bleeding, the NovaSure procedure is a great option that doesn’t require hormones and is less invasive than a hysterectomy.

QUICK
  • The actual endometrial ablation procedure is performed in five minutes.

SIMPLE
  • There's no pre-treatment required. And you can have the procedure done at any time during your cycle, even if you're bleeding. It can be performed right in your doctor's office and endometrial ablation recovery is also quick and simple – some women return to work the day after.
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
  • Approved by the FDA in 2001, the NovaSure procedure has been used and trusted by physicians for more than 15 years.1

HOW THE NOVASURE PROCEDURE 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.
