Novasure Procedure Steps
Recurrence: Small areas of inner lining of the uterus that were missed during the novasure procedure but did not cause significant bleeding right after the procedure can grow back over time and eventually lead to visible bleeding. ...Read more
Endometrial ablation refers to procedures that use energy to damage or destroy the lining of the uterus that normally build up in preparation of pregnancy. If no pregnancy happens, the lining is shed as a period. There are several different types of ablation-thermal heat, radio frequency, and freezing. All of them are good options but some might be better in certain situations. ...Read more
What are the odds of endometrium regenerating after the Novasure procedure? I haven't had a cycle in 13 months.
I had the novasure procedure 4 days ago. During this procedure it was done twice n my lining didnt want to shed what would cause this?
This is not uncommon: It is not uncommon to have some bleeding after an endometrial ablation. In some cases regular periods may return after several months or years. It is more common to have light bleeding. Cramping after sex may release retained blood from your uterus. You should discuss this with your doctor at a future visit. ...Read more
Either one: There really is no good answer to that question. The procedures are equally effective for most women. If your uterus is larger then 8-9 cm, your physician may choose thermal ablation which may be better for larger uterine cavities. If your procedure is done in the office, my experience has been that novasure is somewhat better tolerated and certainly quicker for the patient. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's also not uncommon to have some bleeding after an endometrial ablation. Sometimes regular periods may return after several weeks to years. It is more common to have light bleeding.

How is it possible to have a child after a tubal ligation and a Novasure procedure? I am remarried and we would love to have a baby together.
IVF: On rare occassions, tubals can be reversed. Much higher success with IVF (in vitro fertilization), where eggs are retrieved from mom and then fertilized in the lab with dad's sperm and then implanted into the uterus. This bypasses the tubes so it doesn't matter if you've had a tubal. You need to sit down and have a nice consultation with a fertility specialist/clinic in your area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If novasure did not fit evenly into a womb would the procedure still go ahead and if so wouldnt it be dangerous to ablate one side more than the other?
Not dangerous: Danger isnt the issue with an incomplete ablation. The issue is you may continue to have menstrual bleeding. The procedure will go ahead an ablate even if there is an uneven fit. That is ok. There are safety features in place to prevent activation if there is a hole in the uterus though. Novasure is not my favorite method for ablations but there is not a safety issue if one side was ablated better. ...Read more

I had novasure procedure in november. I started bleeding after intercourse last night and have already had my cycle this month. Should i be worried?
Ablation and bleed: Novasure has a 86% complete amenorrhea rate and most stop after the bleeding noted 6-8 weeks after surgery. However, some patients do take longer to stop completely. In addition, cervical inflammation from infection can cause post sex bleeding and is unrelated to your surgery. Have your surgeon do a quick evaluation in the office to see the source. ...Read more
