Every woman is different, but at 1 year post-Minerva ES, 72%* of women had their period completely eliminated.
In the first year after Minerva ES treatment, many women experience a few cycles, but they are typically light enough to be handled with liners and last only a few days.
93%* of women who had the Minerva treatment had their periods reduced to a bleeding level of normal or less at 1 year.
At 1 year post-treatment with the NovaSure procedure, periods were completely eliminated in just 36%** of women.
After Minerva ES, most women resume normal activities within a day or two. You may experience some cramping, mild pain or nausea. You may also experience some discharge for a few days to a few weeks. Your gynecologist will review this with you so that you know what to expect. Be certain to follow the guidance of your gynecologist for all post-treatment care plans.
