Benefits and considerations of NovaSure for heavy periods

It’s Safe
No pills. No hormonal side effects.

It’s Effective
For 90% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped.

It’s Quick
NovaSure® is a one-time, five-minute procedure that can be done in your doctor’s office, usually for the cost of a copay.

NovaSure can do more than just stop the bleeding. Many women who’ve had the NovaSure procedure say they are now able to spend more time at work and daily activities, participating in more social and athletic outings now that they no longer suffer from heavy bleeding. They also report improved energy levels, better moods, and a boost in self-confidence. And many also had a significant reduction in painful periods and PMS symptoms like irritability.*

Not all women are candidates for NovaSure Endometrial Ablation.

Your doctor will explain the risks of all treatment options. NovaSure is for premenopausal women with heavy periods due to benign causes who are finished childbearing.
