How does NovaSure work to treat heavy periods?

The one-time, 5-minute in-office procedure trusted by over 1 million1 women.

NovaSure® is an endometrial ablation (EA) procedure that can reduce or stop menstrual bleeding. It works by removing the endometrium, or the lining of the uterus (the part that causes the bleeding), with a quick delivery of radiofrequency energy.

Here’s how NovaSure works:

Click to watch video demonstration of Novasure procedure.


Your doctor slightly opens your cervix (the opening to the uterus), inserts a slender wand, and extends a triangular mesh device   into   the uterus
The mesh gently expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus
Precisely measured radio frequency energy is delivered through the mesh for about 90 seconds
The mesh device is pulled back into the wand, and both are removed from the uterus.

No part of the NovaSure device remains inside your body after the procedure.
