If you are experiencing heavy menstrual bleeding, Novasure Endometrial Ablation may be perfect for you. It is a one-time, in-office procedure that usually takes 5 minutes – resulting in dramatic reduction in blood loss each month. Over 90% of patients who have had the Novasure ablation performed recommend this procedure to their friends.
There are some important things to note about this procedure: it is not indicated for patients who desire future fertility nor is it considered a contraceptive.
The Novasure ablation, when done in the office, is often covered under insurance plans for a small co-pay. It is a quick, safe, inexpensive and effective treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding.
After some minor preparation, the uterus is evaluated with a small fiber-optic scope. Using a fan like device that is inserted into the uterus, the lining of the womb is gently burned using bioelectrical impedance. The result is at least 50% reduction in blood loss with menses.
The procedure includes the following steps:
- After slightly dilating your cervix and inserting a slender wand, your doctor will extend a triangular mesh device into your uterus.
- The mesh device gently expands, conforming to the dimensions of your uterine cavity.
- Precisely measured radio frequency energy is delivered through the mesh for approximately 90 seconds.
- The mesh device is retracted back into the wand and both are removed from your uterus.
