What is NovaSure?
NovaSure is a simple, one-time, five-minute procedure that can lighten or end your heavy period without using pills or hormones.
When was NovaSure approved?
The FDA approved NovaSure for treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding in 2001.
How many women have had the procedure?
Since 2001, more than 1.5 million women have been treated with NovaSure to reduce or eliminate menstrual bleeding, without hormones or an invasive hysterectomy.
I hear that it’s done in a doctor’s office, is that safe?
Many women who have NovaSure elect to do it in a doctor’s office or outpatient clinic with local anesthetic and pain medication. Physicians may recommend that women with chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, have the procedure done in a hospital as a precaution.
