  • I just read this... " NovaSure is for premenopausal women with heavy periods due to benign causes who are finished childbearing. Pregnancy following NovaSure can be dangerous." at

    So I'd say your REALLY NEED to talk to your doc about this!!!!!

  • I don't think you can. From what I read- in the brochure that I have- the lining in the uterus will not develop properly to develop a baby. I thought it was only done when you are certain you don't want more kids.

  • From their website:

    Can I still become pregnant after the NovaSure procedure?

    Because NovaSure treats the lining of the uterus, your chances of getting pregnant after the procedure will be reduced. However, it is still possible to get pregnant if youโ€™re sexually active. A pregnancy after an ablation is very dangerous for both the mother and the fetus, since the uterine lining would not be able to properly support fetal development. Itโ€™s very important to talk to your doctor about what birth control you will use after the NovaSure procedure.

  • you can still technically get pregnant after it, but the doctors say it is dangerous to both mother and baby. because it pretty much strips the uterus of all endemetreal (sp) tissues, which is where the baby grows.
