The new rapid treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding. I continue to offer NovaSure as an effective therapeutic treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding.
This procedure has been available in the USA since 2001, and was launched in 2005 in the United Kingdom. This is a second generation endometrial ablation treatment, with outstanding clinical trials.
There is a 97% reduction in heavy periods, and 75% do not have any periods at all after 5 years following treatment. The most recent publications have shown that NovaSure not only reduces heavy periods (menorrhagia) but also significantly reduces painful periods (dysmenorhoea) and pre-menstrual syndrome.
This is a vital finding and means that NovaSure has become both a therapeutic treatment for heavy periods but also helps other problems which women experience including painful periods and pre-menstual syndrome. This simple treatment can radically transform the quality of a woman's life.

- The procedure can be carried out under general anaesthetic or sedation.
