NovaSure® – Treatment for Heavy Periods


NovaSure® is a minimally invasive medical procedure used to treat heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia). It involves the use of radiofrequency energy to remove the lining of the uterus, which reduces menstrual flow. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and typically takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
Heavy menstrual bleeding can be caused by a number of factors, including hormonal imbalances, uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps, and other underlying medical conditions. In some cases, the cause of menorrhagia may be unknown.
The primary symptom of menorrhagia is abnormally heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, which can lead to anemia, fatigue, and other complications. Other symptoms may include menstrual cramps, bloating, and mood changes.
Diagnosis of menorrhagia typically involves a thorough medical history, physical exam, and diagnostic testing, such as ultrasound, hysteroscopy, or endometrial biopsy.
Treatment options for menorrhagia may include medications, such as hormonal contraceptives or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or surgical interventions, such as hysterectomy or endometrial ablation. NovaSure® is a type of endometrial ablation that has been shown to be safe and effective in reducing menstrual bleeding.


As with any medical procedure, there are some potential risks and precautions associated with NovaSure® treatment for heavy periods. Patients should be aware of the possibility of complications, such as infection, bleeding, or uterine perforation. It is important to discuss any potential risks and concerns with a healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure. Additionally, women who have undergone NovaSure® should continue to use contraception, as the procedure does not provide protection against pregnancy.

Overall, NovaSure® can be an effective treatment option for women suffering from heavy menstrual bleeding. It is important for patients to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if it is the right choice for their individual needs.
