How does NovaSure work to treat heavy periods?

The one-time, 5-minute in-office procedure trusted by over 1 million1 women.

NovaSure® is an endometrial ablation (EA) procedure that can reduce or stop menstrual bleeding. It works by removing the endometrium, or the lining of the uterus (the part that causes the bleeding), with a quick delivery of radiofrequency energy.

Here's how NovaSure works:

NovaSure: Heavy Period Treatment Step 1   Your doctor slightly opens your cervix (the opening to the uterus), inserts a slender wand, and extends a triangular mesh device into the uterus
NovaSure: Heavy Period Treatment Step 2   The mesh gently expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus
NovaSure: Heavy Period Treatment Step 3   Precisely measured radio frequency energy is delivered through the mesh for about 90 seconds
NovaSure: Heavy Period Treatment Step 4   The mesh device is pulled back into the wand, and both are removed from the uterus.


No part of the NovaSure device remains inside your body after the procedure.
