Dr. Jennifer Iacovelli of Drs. Goodman & Partridge, OB/GYN is now performing a procedure in the office for women suffering from excessive menstrual bleeding called Novasure.

You are now performing a procedure in the office for women suffering from excessive menstrual bleeding?

Yes! 10 million women in the U.S. may suffer from excessive menstrual bleeding1. NovaSure is a quick, safe, and simple medical procedure to lighten or stop your periods permanently, without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy. Over 1 million women have been treated with the NovaSure procedure1. In a clinical study of women who had received the NovaSure procedure, 9 out of 10 reported they had normal, light, or no periods2.

What exactly does the procedure do?
The NovaSure procedure removes the uterine lining while preserving the uterus to reduce or eliminate bleeding. Treatment time is typically only 90 seconds and the steps of the procedure are as follows2:
NovaSure can do more than just stop the bleeding. Many women who’ve had the NovaSure procedure say they are now able to spend more time at work and daily activities, missing out on fewer social and athletic outings because of excessive bleeding. They also report improved energy levels, better moods, and a boost in self-confidence. And many also had a significant reduction in painful periods and PMS symptoms like irritability.

How long is the procedure and associated recovery time?
NovaSure typically takes less than 5 minutes to complete2, can be performed in the office and most women experience mild or no pain during or after the procedure.3 You can go home immediately afterward and most women return to regular activities within 1-2 days.

What if they want more children?
Only women with excessive menstrual bleeding who are finished having children may be candidates for the NovaSure procedure. It’s very important to talk to your doctor about what birth control you will use after the NovaSure procedure.


I felt compelled to post this because women should be aware of yet another invasive procedure developed to treat symptoms of excessive bleeding instead of getting to the root cause.

If you have excessive bleeding you should start living with your hormone cycle – that is always number 1.  Excessive bleeding may be due to weak capillaries in the uterus.  Taking Vitamin C complex with ascorbic acid and bioflavnoids will help strengthen the capillaries and reduce the bleeding.   it is the bioflavnoids that do the trick.

Only in extreme cases should a woman even consider this Nuva rape and scrape.
