In Office Procedures Q & A
What is NovaSure®?
NovaSure is an endometrial ablation procedure in which your OB/GYN delivers radiofrequency energy directly into your uterus through a wand and netting system. You'll shed your uterine lining in response.
NovaSure is an excellent solution for abnormally heavy bleeding during your periods. But only women who are finished having children should get NovaSure endometrial ablation. Although you can still get pregnant after NovaSure, it’s highly dangerous to do so and you should use contraception to prevent this.
What is Nexplanon®?
Nexplanon is a progestin hormonal birth control implant that offers up to three years of continuous pregnancy prevention. Your Complete Healthcare for Women care provider inserts Nexplanon in your upper arm during a short office visit.
What are IUDs?
IUDs are long-term birth control options. Complete Healthcare for Women offers two types: hormone IUDs and the copper (non-hormone) IUD.
During a quick office procedure, your care provider inserts the IUD into your uterus. The IUD stays for anywhere from 5-10 years, depending on the type and your wishes. The hormonal IUDs last up to five years, and the copper IUD lasts up to 10 years. Your provider can remove your IUD at any time you decide you want to have a baby.
What are colposcopy and LEEP?
A colposcopy is an in-office procedure commonly done after an abnormal Pap smear. During a colposcopy, your Complete Healthcare for Women provider uses a magnifying device to look more closely for abnormal areas of cells on your cervix.
Sometimes, a colposcopy includes a LEEP. A LEEP is a procedure in which your provider numbs your cervix to remove abnormal tissue. This cervical tissue will be sent to a pathologist for further testing.
What is hysteroscopy?
A hysteroscopy is a simple in-office procedure in which your care provider views your uterine cavity through a slender tool called a hysteroscope. Hysteroscopy is used in both diagnostics and treatment. Your provider may use hysteroscopy for uterine scar tissue removal, diagnosis of problems like fibroids, along with many other uses.
Dilation and curettage (D&C)
A dilation and curettage (D&C), which cleans out the uterine lining, may be done at the same time as a hysteroscopy. In combination, a D&C and hysteroscopy is used for abnormal bleeding treatment, to clear the uterus post-miscarriage, for polyp removal, or for fibroid removal.
