Treating heavy periods

If you are taking too much time off work and missing out on activities you enjoy, it’s time to take charge.

One popular treatment among women is known as Novasure endometrial ablation.

Novasure is a safe and extremely effective treatment that’s designed to affect your uterine lining. After your treatment, the results remain reliable, with around 80% of women reporting a complete stop to menstruation and 98% reporting significant improvement.

What you need to know about Novasure

Novasure endometrial ablation takes mere minutes. The treatment is performed under local anesthetic in our office, which means you can return to work the following day.

Since this treatment works to drastically decrease menstrual flow and, at times, completely stop menstruation, it is only an option for you if you are completely sure you don’t want any more children.

If you have heavy periods that last a week or two and you do not want any more kids, you may be the perfect candidate for Novasure.

After consulting with you, we will decide if Novasure treatment is right for you. However, if you’re completely sure you don’t want kids going forward, and we’ve ruled out any other causes of the heavy bleeding, you may be a good candidate for this type of treatment.

The treatment takes less than five minutes, and most women report experiencing little to no pain both during and after the procedure.
