Heavy periods can take a serious toll on a woman’s life. Fortunately, there is a quick and effective solution to this issue. NovaSure endometrial ablation is a one-time procedure that’s designed to remove the uterine lining or endometrium, which is what causes heavy bleeding. This procedure can be completed in only five minutes and does not involve any incisions.
Raleigh OB/GYN Centre is pleased to offer NovaSure for women who are ready to say goodbye to abnormal menstrual bleeding. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of NovaSure and what you can expect if you undergo this revolutionary procedure.
Benefits of NovaSure
NovaSure endometrial ablation has changed the lives of countless women across the country. Women who have had this procedure done state that they are now able to live productive lives and participate in more social activities.
They no longer have to worry about heavy menstrual bleeding and enjoy increased energy and greater self-confidence. In addition, many women report that they have seen a reduction in PMS symptoms.
How NovaSure Works
Although NovaSure can be completed in five minutes, if you undergo this procedure, you should plan on being at our facility for about an hour. Your doctor will begin by opening up your cervix, inserting a thin wand, and extending a triangular shaped device with netting into your uterus.
You will notice that the netting will expand and perfectly fit the size and shape of your uterus. Your doctor will then deliver radio frequency energy through the netting for about a minute and a half. Lastly, the device will be pulled back into the wand and both the wand and device will be removed from your uterus.
Who is a Good Candidate for NovaSure?
NovaSure endometrial ablation was specifically designed for premenopausal women with heavy periods who are finished having children. We do not recommend this procedure if you believe that you may want to have children in the future because your uterine lining, which is vital for growing a fetus, will be removed.
Although NovaSure can improve your quality of life and allow you to participate in the activities you love, it isn’t for every woman. Speak to one of our doctors to determine if this procedure is right for you.
