Heavy bleeding (also known as menorrhagia) affects about 1 out of 5 women. Women with menorrhagia experience heavy and/or long-lasting periods. But the affects of heavy bleeding can have more than physical symptoms; it can affect women socially and emotionally as well.
Benefits and Risks of the NovaSure ablation procedure
Many women who’ve had the NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure are now able to spend more time at work and daily activities, participating in more social and athletic outings now that they no longer suffer from heavy menstural bleeding. They also report improved energy levels, better moods, and a boost in self-confidence. And many also had a significant reduction in painful periods and PMS symptoms like irritability.
However, not all women are candidates for NovaSure endometrial ablation and Dr. Leibman will explain the risks of your treatment options.
- NovaSure endometrial ablation is for premenopausal women with heavy periods due to benign causes who are finished childbearing.
- Pregnancy following NovaSure can be dangerous.
- NovaSure endometrial ablation is not for those who have or suspect uterine cancer, have an active genital, urinary or pelvic infection or an IUD.
- NovaSure is not a sterilization procedure.
- Rare but serious risks include but are not limited to thermal injury, perforation and infection.
- Temporary side effects may include cramping, nausea, vomiting, discharge and spotting.
