Ive worked in surgery for 9 years...and ive actually done this proceedure many times..not personally had it done, but have seen it done first hand in the OR. The doctors say that the patients do very well with this proceedure. Im pretty sure they said its not really painful at all.
I had a tubal ligation, and as a result I have very heavy, were talking blood everywhere, weak from blood loss, very painful periods. We tried bc hormones but they cost me $200 with insurance!! The nova sure procedure cauterizes the inside of the uterus so you no longer have periods, or you just have really light ones.
