NovaSure® Overview

Has your heavy period been keeping you away?

If you're like 1 in 5 women with heavy periods, you want to get back to life. NovaSure® is a one- time, five-minute procedure that can lighten or end your heavy period. No pills. No hormonal side effects. For 77.7% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped. It's a simple procedure that can be done in your doctor's office, usually for the cost of a copay. Talk to your doctor about stepping back into life with NovaSure. Life will be there to welcome you back.

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

NovaSure works in four simple steps:
