Novasure Q & A

What is the NovaSure procedure?

NovaSure® is a groundbreaking endometrial ablation procedure that’s minimally invasive and performed right in your doctor’s office. The NovaSure procedure begins much like a routine Pap test, where you have to lie back and rest your feet in stirrups, while your OB/GYN inserts the speculum into your vagina to hold open your vaginal walls.

They carefully insert a long, slender wand into your vagina that extends triangular-shaped netting to match the size and inner shape of your uterus. Once the netting is in place, your OB/GYN sends out radiofrequency energy through the netting, which gently ablates your uterine lining.

After about 90 seconds, your practitioner removes the netted device and wand, and your procedure is complete. From start to finish, the entire NovaSure procedure often takes less than five minutes.

Am I a candidate for NovaSure?

NovaSure is safe and effective for almost all women who suffer from abnormal periods. This innovative procedure might be right for you if you:

  • Must change heavy-flow tampons or pads every hour or more
  • Wake up during the night to change your pads or tampons
  • Have heavy menstrual bleeding that disrupts your daily life
  • Have monthly periods that last for seven days or more

NovaSure is also an ideal treatment if your menstrual periods are so heavy that you become anemic and struggle with dangerously low iron levels. In any case, the dedicated team at Rodeo Drive Women's Health evaluates your health and performs a head-to-toe examination to determine if NovaSure is the best treatment for your specific symptoms.

Can I still get pregnant after NovaSure?

Yes, although you need to talk with your OB/GYN at Rodeo Drive Women's Health if you still want to become pregnant in the future. If you do become pregnant after having a NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure, you might be considered a high-risk pregnancy because the lining of your uterus was damaged.

It’s generally recommended to wait to get NovaSure until after your family is complete to minimize your risk of pregnancy complications, although each woman is evaluated individually.
