Benefits & Possible Side Effects of Novasure

stomach painDo you have heavy menstrual bleeding that makes you feel hostage to the bathroom and your tampon each month? Do you miss out on monthly activities because of the heavy bleeding? Would you like to get back to care-free periods? Then Novasure is here to help restore your freedom. Novasure is a next-generation treatment (or endometrial ablation system) that reduces or eliminates excessive bleeding by safely removing the endometrial lining of the uterus which is responsible for the heavy bleeding. This minimally invasive procedure is well tolerated and 97% said they would recommend Novasure to a friend. So, how does NovaSure work and what details do I need to know?
1. It’s a one-time procedure: With the Novasure procedure, you can bid farewell to your troublesome heavy bleeding once and for all. The doctor uses a slender, hand-held device to remove the endometrial lining by passing a precisely measured amount of electrical energy for about 90 seconds and that’s it; you are done. And this procedure takes only three to five minutes!
2. It’s tolerable: Most women who have gone through the Novasure procedure say they experienced little pain or not pain at all!
3. It can be performed at an out-patient setting: Novasure procedure can be performed in your doctor’s office. You will need someone to drive you home due to the mild sedative to make the procedure more comfortable.
4. It is a great option, especially when hormones don’t work or aren’t tolerated: The Novasure procedure involves no incision, no anesthesia and no hormonal treatment.
5. It does not set you back: Unlike other treatments for menorrhagia, the Novasure procedure (since it’s minimally invasive) lets you get back to work the very next day and you might even play sports like tennis that very weekend.
6. It is very effective: 91% of Novasure patients claimed to have returned to normal or lower than normal levels of bleeding and 93% of patients treated with Novasure were satisfied with their results.
