Novasure Ablation

Hormone Releasing IUD

 

Unlike the NovaSure procedure that is performed only once to control heavy bleeding, a hormone-releasing IUD must be removed and replaced periodically. It should be noted that the hormone-releasing IUD is not approved in the US for the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding.
