Hi! I had the Novasure procedure done in June. I was having the same problem. After my third child, my periods got really heavy and then I got them every 2 weeks. My husband has also been clipped and we are not having an more children. I have not had a period since the procedure was done! My Doctor said nothing about having to repeat it in 5 years. The only thing I STRONGLY recommend would be that you get it done in the hospital not the office. I did it in the office while I was awake and it was extremely painful. You can expect to be down (in bed on pain pills for about 24 hours) and you will have a watery discharge for a few months after. I only had a little blood on the day of the procedure and then nothing but water. I opted for this procedure because I di not want to take hormones. So in conclusion, get the ablation done. It is worth it to stop the periods and regain your life! I am so much happier to not be bleeding all the time. Hooray for technology, we should have the choice to stop it!
