Novasure Ablation Q & A

What are the benefits of NovaSure ablation?

NovaSure ablation is a one-time in-office procedure that takes about 5 minutes. This minimally invasive treatment involves gently ablating your inner uterine lining — your endometrium — which is what often causes heavy periods. NovaSure is one of the most in-demand treatments for abnormal bleeding because it:

  • Doesn’t require needles or incisions
  • Can be done at any point in your cycle 
  • Is safe and effective (and FDA-approved) 
  • Doesn’t involve any pretreatment or preparation
  • Often eliminates the need for hormonal medications

Nearly eight out of 10 women who undergo a NovaSure ablation procedure experience reduced menstrual bleeding within a year. 

It’s important to note that while NovaSure ablation is highly beneficial for many reasons, it’s a permanent procedure that changes your uterus. You can’t bear children afterward, so it’s essential to ensure your family is complete before considering NovaSure.

What happens during a NovaSure ablation?

The NovaSure ablation procedure requires you to lie back with your feet in stirrups, just like when you’re about to have a pelvic exam or Pap test. Your OB/GYN inserts the small NovaSure device into your vaginal canal and through your cervix to reach your uterus.

This tool extends a netted device into your uterus, which expands to fit the exact size and shape of your inner uterus. The NovaSure tool then sends out precise waves of radiofrequency energy to gently remove your endometrium. Once your treatment is complete, your OB/GYN removes the device. 

Your dedicated OB/GYN at Contemporary Women's Care spends time talking with you about your NovaSure procedure, so you know exactly what to expect during and after your treatment.

How long is recovery after NovaSure ablation?

NovaSure ablation doesn’t require any significant downtime. You may be sore for a few days, experience spotting, and have an increased urge to urinate. These minor side effects are very well-tolerated. 

Your OB/GYN at Contemporary Women's Care may recommend avoiding sexual intercourse and vigorous activities for several days, depending on how quickly you heal.
