Has anyone had this procedure done to help with your cycle? Mine have gotten horrible lately and even hormonal BC hasn't helped. Just curious about some personal experiences.

  • Are you done having kids? It basically cauterizes the inside of the uterus. I wish I had done it. I had set up to do so and insurance wouldn't take it. But my other doc told me, it doesn't help with the pain from the periods, just the heaviness.

  • I had a hydrothermal ablation last October. My doctor chose that over Novasure because it uses free-flowing heated water which reaches the entire endometrium. Novasure only burns where the triangular mesh touches, so there will likely be some healthy tissue left over after the procedure.
