Has Your Heavy Period Been Keeping You Away?

If you’re like 1 in 5 women with heavy periods, you want to get back to life. NovaSure® is a one-time, five-minute procedure that can lighten or end your heavy period. No pills. No hormonal side effects. For many women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped. It’s a simple procedure that can be done in the doctor’s office, usually for the cost of a copay.

If you have heavy or long-lasting periods, and you don’t want to have children in the future, you may be a great candidate for the NovaSure® procedure. Talk it over with your doctor. Also, before deciding to move forward, ask your doctor to be sure he or she rules out any serious causes of heavy bleeding, like cancer or a pelvic inflammatory infection.

Yes! Pregnancy following endometrial ablation is very dangerous for both the mother and the fetus so before you have the NovaSure® procedure you should talk to your doctor about getting a form contraception.

You may feel some cramping, mild pain or nausea, you may have some vomiting, but for the most part these symptoms are mild and go away within a day. In fact, most women feel back to themselves–back to resuming their normal activities by the following day. Be sure to follow any instructions your doctor gives you no matter how good you’re feeling.

If you do experience a watery or bloody discharge after having the NovaSure® procedure, don’t worry, this is normal. It could last briefly or a couple of weeks, even up to two months, after having the procedure. It could also come and go, increasing with certain activities. This can be expected with any endometrial ablation procedure.

Your doctor will explain the risks of all treatment options you may be considering. Risks associated with the NovaSure® procedure are very rare and reported at a rate of less than 0.05%. But if you experience any of the following, be sure to talk to your doctor-also let him or her know if you have a cardiac pacemaker or any other electrical device in your body before you have the procedure. Here is a list of some of the potential side effects and complications associated with this procedure:

  • A fever higher than 100.4  F (38 C)
  • Worsening pelvic pain that is not relieved by ibuprofen or other prescribed medicine
  • Nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, dizziness
  • Bowel or bladder problems
  • A greenish vaginal discharge (reddish, yellowish or brownish is normal)
  • Thermal injury
  • Perforation and infections

Every woman is different. But plan to give your body about three months to fully heal on the inside and resume its normal cycle. At that point, you and your doctor should be able to tell what your cycle and periods will be like going forward.

Yes! In clinical studies, 95% of patients reported feeling satisfied with the results 12 months after having the NovaSure® procedure.1 In addition, 97% said they would recommend NovaSure® to a friend.1
