s-perfectSmile1.jpgMillions of women experience heavy menstrual bleeding, usually starting in their mid-30s and early 40s. This is not uncommon, as it happens frequently as women approach menopause. These heavy periods are not only inconvenient, but they also can cause fatigue, nausea, abdominal cramps, headaches, depression, mood swings or anxiety.

Our office offers the latest one-time procedure available to alleviate heavy periods – NovaSure®! NovaSure is a 5-minute endometrial ablation procedure where our doctor will remove some or all of your endometrium, a type of tissue that is commonly found on the inside lining of the uterus, that is causing the heavy bleeding. To do, a slim wand is inserted through your cervix, and a triangular device is opened and expanded to fit accurately inside your uterus. For approximately 90 seconds, our doctor will administer a radio frequency through the device which destroys the endometrium. The triangular device is then folded back inside the thin wand and removed from your body.

To see if NovaSure is right for you, please call our office to schedule a consultation.
