As a leading gynecologist in the Dallas, TX, metro region, Dr. Chowdhury is skilled in endometrial ablation using state-of-the-art approaches like Novasure, which uses radiofrequency energy to treat - and stop - heavy menstrual bleeding in women in and around Plano. Novasure is a one-time short procedure that can lighten or end the menstrual period. It is for premenopausal women with heavy periods due to benign causes who are done with childbearing. Dr. Chowdhury offers this procedure for the right candidate. This can, for most women, avoid having to go through major surgery.
Endometrial ablation is an outpatient procedure that's designed to remove the lining of the uterus (the endometrium). It's most commonly used in women who have extremely heavy menstrual bleeding – a condition called menorrhagia – which is so heavy, it can interfere with the activities of daily living as well as sleeping. Menorrhagia tends to occur in women who are approaching menopause, and blood flow is so heavy during periods, most women must change their pad or tampon every couple of hours or even more frequently – even during the night. The endometrial ablation usually stops periods from occurring, which means it's only considered in women who don't want to have more children.
Novasure is a safe and effective endometrial ablation technique that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to destroy the lining of the uterus. The RF energy is delivered through a special device that's designed to be inserted through the vagina and into the cervix, the opening of the uterus. Once inside the uterus, the device emits RF energy in precisely measured doses for about 90 seconds, destroying the cells that comprise the endometrium. The complete procedure takes about five to 10 minutes to perform, and it can be performed using sedation and local anesthetics without the need for general anesthesia and its attendant risks.
You'll probably feel groggy after your procedure, and you'll need to have someone drive you home. For the next day or so, you may also have some cramping, similar to the cramping you experience when you have your period. Most women experience complete cessation of their periods following treatment with Novasure, but younger women may have a return of periods which typically are not as heavy.
