Heavy Menstrual Period Treatment with NovaSure®

NovaSure®Treatment from our Office in Anchorage, AKWoman experiencing painful menstrual cramps

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.
