What Is Novasure Endometrial Ablation?

NovaSure Endometrial Ablation is a quick, safe, and simple procedure to lighten or stop your periods, without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy.

  • It’s Effective: For 77.7% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped.
  • It’s Quick: NovaSure Endometrial Ablation is a one-time, five-minute procedure that can be done in your doctor’s office, usually for the cost of a copay.

Benefits and Considerations of NovaSure Endometrial Ablation For Heavy Periods

NovaSure can do more than just stop the bleeding. Many women who’ve had the NovaSure Endometrial Ablation procedure say they are now able to spend more time at work and daily activities, participating in more social and athletic outings now that they no longer suffer from heavy bleeding. They also report improved energy levels, better moods, and a boost in self-confidence. And many also had a significant reduction in painful periods and PMS symptoms like irritability.*

Not All Women Are Candidates for NovaSure Endometrial Ablation

Your doctor will explain the risks of all treatment options. NovaSure is for premenopausal women with heavy periods due to benign causes who are finished childbearing. Pregnancy following NovaSure can be dangerous. NovaSure is not for those who have or suspect uterine cancer, have an active genital, urinary or pelvic infection or 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.

Is NovaSure Endometrial Ablation Right for Me?

If you are absolutely sure that you never want to have any children in the future and would like to stop your heavy period and restart your life, the NovaSure® endometrial ablation procedure may be right for you.

If you know you don’t want children right now, but think you could change your mind in the future, then do not choose a one-time treatment option. Try a temporary treatment option to help lighten or stop your periods instead.
