Is NovaSure right for me?
Women with heavy or long-lasting periods who do not wish to have children in the future may be candidates for the NovaSure procedure. Your gynaecologist can decide if NovaSure is right for you, however, your doctor rules out more serious causes of heavy bleeding prior to the Novasure procedure.
What can I expect after the NovaSure procedure?
Some women may experience some cramping, mild pain, nausea, and/or vomiting. Most women can resume normal activities within a day or so. A watery and/or bloody discharge following the NovaSure Endometrial Ablation procedure is normal. It could start anywhere from immediately after the procedure to a couple of weeks afterwards. The discharge may last for up to a couple of months. This is quite normal and can be expected with any endometrial ablation procedure.
