Contraception after the NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure

Will I need contraception after the NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure?

YES. It is important to know that it is still possible to become pregnant after a NovaSure® endometrial ablation procedure.

Pregnancy following endometrial ablation is very dangerous for both the mother and the fetus so before you have the NovaSure procedure you should talk to your doctor about getting a form of permanent contraception.

There are several temporary and permanent birth control options available. Therefore it's very important to talk to your doctor ahead of time about what birth control method you will use after the NovaSure procedure.
