Considering NovaSure? You'll need to think about birth control too.
After the NovaSure procedure, it is still possible to get pregnant. Since pregnancy after any endometrial ablation procedure is dangerous for both the mother and the fetus, you'll need to rely on long-term birth control after the procedure.
It's very important to talk to your doctor ahead of time about what birth control method you will use after the NovaSure procedure.
