If you have heavy or long-lasting periods that are caused by submucosal fibroids or endometrial polyps, you may be a good candidate for the MyoSure procedure. Your doctor will first rule out more serious causes of your heavy bleeding, then help you decide if the procedure is right for you.
The MyoSure hysteroscopic tissue removal system should not be used if you are pregnant, have a pelvic infection or cervical malignancies or have had previously diagnosed uterine or endometrial cancer. In addition, the MyoSure procedure may also not be appropriate for some women with the following conditions, depending upon their severity or extent1:
• Inability to distend uterus.
• Cervical stenosis.
• Uterine bleeding or menses.
• Invasive carcinoma of the cervix.
• Recent uterine perforation.
• Medical contraindication or intolerance to anesthesia.
