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:
|Your doctor slightly opens your cervix (the opening to the uterus), inserts a slender wand, and extends a triangular mesh device into the uterus|
|The mesh gently expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus|
|Precisely measured radio frequency energy is delivered through the mesh for about 90 seconds|
|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.
