Heavy Menstrual Period Treatment with NovaSure®
NovaSure®Treatment from our Office in Anchorage, AK
Women’s Care of Alaska offers treatment for women with menstrual bleeding that causes unbearable pain and heavy menstrual bleeding. NovaSure® is a non-surgical office based endometrial ablation procedure used to treat the lining of the uterus (endometrium) in women experiencing heavy menstrual periods. Your physician may recommend NovaSure® when birth control pills have been ineffective or have produced undesirable effects such as weight gain, moodiness etc.
NovaSure®is a safe procedure using radio frequency energy (radio waves) to permanently remove the uterine lining (endometrium). The procedure is performed by your physician gently inserting a thin wand, with a mesh array, into the uterus. Once the mesh has conformed to the uterine wall, a radio frequency is generated for about 90 seconds and the wand with the array is then removed. Similar to the results from Thermochoice®, the uterine lining will be shed over the next week to 10 days. Results have included a significant reduction in menstrual bleeding, stopped periods, reduced PMS symptoms and reduced pain and cramping.
