NovaSure® Q & A
What is NovaSure?
NovaSure is a quick, safe, and effective endometrial ablation procedure that destroys and/or removes your uterine lining (the endometrium). The goal is to reduce, or in some cases stop heavy menstrual bleeding. NovaSure is only suitable for women who no longer wish to have children.
For many women, heavy menstrual bleeding is extremely painful and causes them to miss work and other important moments in life. The NovaSure procedure can provide ongoing symptom relief.
The NovaSure system utilizes gentle radiofrequency energy and advanced, specially designed tools.
What can NovaSure treat?
Dr. Jones provides NovaSure to treat a number of conditions, most commonly abnormal uterine bleeding. NovaSure is a great way to treat:
- Dyspareunia (painful or difficult sexual intercourse)
- Dysmenorrhea (painful menstrual cramps)
- Fibroids (noncancerous growths in the uterus)
Dr. Jones takes time to determine the root cause of your problem and helps you decide if the NovaSure procedure is right for you.
What can I expect during my NovaSure procedure?
Dr. Jones gives you plenty of information so you know what to expect during your NovaSure procedure. On the day of your procedure, Dr. Jones slightly opens your cervix and places a flexible, thin wand and a netting device into your uterus.
The netting swells to fit the size and shape of your uterus. Safe and controlled radiofrequency energy passes through the netting for around 90 seconds. Dr. Jones then carefully guides the device back into the wand and gently removes it from your uterus.
If you have any questions about your upcoming NovaSure procedure, be sure to ask Dr. Jones during your initial consultation.
What are the benefits of NovaSure?
NovaSure is simple, safe, quick, and effective. The NovaSure procedure only takes around five minutes and can be performed at any time during your menstrual cycle. NovaSure doesn’t involve any incisions or external scarring, and your uterus is left intact.
In 2001, the Food and Drug Administration approved NovaSure after more than 15 years of extensive clinical experience. The success rate is impressive, and if you’ve suffered from pain and disruptive heavy bleeding for many years, the NovaSure procedure can be truly life-changing.
