NovaSure treatment for heavy periods

A new treatment for heavy periods is now available at Spire Leicester Hospital.

NovaSure  - quick, simple, safe and innovative

Heavy menstrual bleeding can be very difficult to live with. It's hard to carry on with everyday life when you're exhausted and worried about embarrassing accidents. Yet the NovaSure system could help free you of heavy bleeding so you can enjoy the things you love and live life to the full.

It's a real alternative to having a hysterectomy and can put a stop to heavy bleeding.

NovaSure can treat heavy bleeding quickly, safely and effectively. As a genuine alternative to a hysterectomy, it's an innovative treatment that can make all the difference.

What is NovaSure?

NovaSure is a new generation of endometrial ablation treatment. It uses precisely measured electrical energy to permanently remove the lining of the uterus (endometrium) via a slender hand-held wand. During the procedure, the consultant slightly dilates the cervic so that the wand can enter the uterus. Once inside, the wand expands to fit the size and shape of the uterus meaning that the energy can be delivered accurately and quickly (in around 90 seconds). As soon as the lining is removed, the energy automatically stops and the treatment is over.

The life-changing benefits

After treatment, most women will experience much lighter menstrual bleeding - some women's periods stop completely.

Other benefits include:

  • Many women have less painful periods and fewer PMS symptons.
  • Unlike other endometrial ablation procedures, you won't need to take pre-treatment drug.
  • The treatment itself lasts for only around 90 seconds.
  • Return to normal activities generally takes one to two days.
  • The treatment can be carried out at any time during your cycle (even during your period).
  • The results are permanent and satisfaction rates amongst women are extremely high.

Is NovaSure right for me?

If you haven't gone through the menopause yet and don't want to have any more children, then NovaSure may be your answer to heavy bleeding. The treatment will be suitable for most women with heavy periods. A Consultant Gynaecologist will be able to talk things through with you and advise you according to your personal medical history; in some instances additional tests may be required prior to recommending this treatment.
