I guess what works well for one person does not work well for another.

Thanks for the info.

I was considering this procedure, because I had very heavy flow. Then I quit having periods as frequently. I needed an ultrasound to determine if it would help me. I have fibroid cysts which can prevent the procedure from working.

I have a friend who had it done, and it has been great for her.

Didn't go so well for me. HORRIBLE cramping. Still have fairly heavy bleeding.

I'm glad it worked for you & your sister.

I got an ablation afterbeing on a birth control for several years to regulate my periods. I went off the pills and didn't have a period for 5 months when all of a sudden I was having lots of heavy flows too often and even having to go to the ER. My doctor suggested this instead of continuing on the HRT that I had started. It was done in the hospital and I was put under just like a surgery but it didn't take long. I recovered quickly with no pain or cramps. My sister had one too and she did experience cramping for several days. Although I still have hormones and TOM symptoms (like cravings and cramps), neither my sister or I have periods anymore. I just turned 53.

Here is what I got off the NovaSure site.

What to expect from the NovaSure procedure
What is the NovaSure procedure like?

NovaSure Endometrial Ablation is the simple, one-time, 5 minute procedure trusted by over one million women - without hormones or hysterectomy.

It can be done in a doctor's office
The entire procedure typically takes less than 5 minutes
It is performed without any incisions
There is no need for general anesthesia
Most women report little or no pain, and return to their regular activities within a day

What is NovaSure Endometrial Ablation?
NovaSure is a quick, safe, and simple procedure to lighten or stop your periods, without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy.

Why choose NovaSure?
Its Safe: No pills. No hormonal side effects.
Its Effective: For 90% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped.

During the NovaSure procedure

Your doctor may inject a local anesthetic into your uterus (the cervix). No general anesthesia is required, so you will probably be awake during the procedure.
Your doctor slightly opens your cervix (the opening to the uterus), inserts a slender wand, and extends a triangular mesh device into the uterus.
The mesh gently expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus.
Precisely measured radio frequency energy is delivered through the mesh for about 90 seconds.
The mesh device is pulled back into the wand, and both are removed from the uterus.
The entire procedure usually takes less than 5 minutes.

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Phil. 4:13
