Endometrial ablation is a quick, outpatient procedure that gently removes the endometrial lining of the uterus (called the "endometrium") to control bleeding. The endometrial lining of the uterus is shed monthly during your period. Removing the endometrial lining decreases menstrual blood flow, and in many cases, stops it completely. The most popular form of endometrial ablation is The NovaSure Procedure, which has demonstrated excellent success.
The NovaSure procedure is a quick, safe, simple, one-time endometrial ablation treatment. This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding by using energy to remove the lining of the uterus. The average treatment time is about 90 seconds 1, and only needs to be performed once to lighten or stop your periods. No pretreatment drugs are required and NovaSure can be performed in the hospital or in your doctor's office.
Without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy, NovaSure has a quick recovery time so you can get back to your life sooner. Most women experience no pain after the procedure, and can return to work and regular activities the next day.
NovaSure reduces bleeding and much more
With more than 500,000 patients treated to date2, NovaSure is proven safe and successful. A clinical trial has shown that more than 9 out of 10 women return to normal or lower than normal bleeding levels following treatments with NovaSure3. For some women, their periods even stopped completely.
Many women also experienced a reduction in PMS and painful periods, as well as other benefits such as less anxiety, greater self-confidence, and a boost in energy. NovaSure clinical trial post treatment survey results reveal,
45% reduction in women reporting PMS
64% reduction in women reporting pain
68% reduction in women reporting anxiety
71% reduction in women reporting a lack of self-confidence
Nearly 4 fold reduction in women reporting a lack of energy
NovaSure makes a difference!
Many women find that treatment with NovaSure frees them up to enjoy more of what life has to offer. According to the NovaSure clinical trial post treatment survey, 4 out of 5 women report spending more time at work and daily activities and missing fewer social and athletic events because of heavy bleeding.
A half a million women to date have chosen NovaSure to reduce or eliminate their heavy periods and improve their quality of life. Women are very pleased with the results of the NovaSure procedure; 97% say they would recommend NovaSure to other women.
One physician's patients are amazed at how effective NovaSure is. Another doctor's patients are reassured when she tells them that she has had the procedure herself.
NovaSure is a procedure for premenopausal women for whom childbearing is complete. If you do not plan to have children in the future, you may want to consider endometrial ablation. In a small percentage of patients, side effects included cramping, nausea/vomiting, discharge, and spotting.
Endometrial ablation can be done either in an outpatient surgicenter, or in the doctor's office. There are few side effects, and women generally return to work and other normal activities the next day.
"The advantage is that we can offer a procedure in the office, a short procedure…that will take care of their problem almost always."
