Who Can Benefit From NovaSure®?

Your menstrual cycles have led you to a point where approximately a quarter of your life is spent dealing with heavy bleeding and discomfort — and you’ve had enough. One of the more effective ways for putting an end to the problem of heavy menstrual bleeding is NovaSure® endometrial ablation.

At Associates in Obstetrics & Gynecology, our experienced team has helped many of our patients to regain their lives with the NovaSure treatment. If you’re struggling with heavy bleeding each month, the odds are good that we can do the same for you.

Here’s a look at who might benefit from NovaSure.

Behind heavy bleeding

Heavy menstrual bleeding is fairly common and affects 27-54% of women who are menstruating.

How NovaSure can help

NovaSure is a system used to perform endometrial ablation, and it was approved by the FDA in 2001. During the procedure, we ablate (destroy) the lining of your uterus to reduce the amount you bleed each month.

To do this, we perform the following steps:

In total, the NovaSure procedure takes us only five minutes to perform. We do it here in our office, and you’re free to go home afterward.

What to think about when considering NovaSure

When we ablate the lining of your uterus, it effectively puts an end to your ability to safely have children. Given this, you should only consider NovaSure if you’re sure you don’t want to have children moving forward.

After your NovaSure procedure, you can still get pregnant, but not safely, which means you’ll still need to practice some sort of birth control.

Outside of this consideration, NovaSure is considered a safe and effective treatment for resolving heavy bleeding in most women. In many cases, the bleeding stops altogether.

To determine whether NovaSure might be the right solution for your heavy bleeding, contact our office in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to schedule a consultation.
