Novasure

I just went in to have a Novasure this morning.  After an hour and 1/2 in the OR they said it could not be done because my uterus was too narrow.  Is this common?  Is there anything else I can do?

HI!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that this is not common, but not unheard of either.  I might consider trying another method such as the balloon method (Thermachoice).  Another option might be a Mirena IUD or a vaginal hysterectomy.  Here is a reference to a site with information about endometrial ablation:                                      http://www.livestrong.com/search/?   mode=standard&search=Endometrial+Ablation&utm_source=relatedsearchtop

Good luck!

I had the Nova fine st the age if 25. Then at 28 I had to have a partial hyst. I'm now 33 and kinda back to my old self. If you can't have the nova done see about the partial so you can keep your self from full blown medepause ( horrible speller sorry :(...). I went threw the change cause of the operation and it was awfull and not even to its fullest which I get to look forward to again someday lol
