They call it the Nova Sure Procedure, but for me, it’s the freedom to wear white pants again – procedure.
I hesitated in writing this post, because, umm well it’s rather personal. But the thoughts of sharing this continued to enter my mind. I mean, I know 99.9% of my readers are female. Why can’t I talk about my struggle with heavy periods or periods that would last 10, 15 sometimes 20 days at a time? We as bloggers share our birth stories online, we write about breastfeeding, or how some have struggled with infertility. I thought why not share about this simple procedure called Nova Sure, so that others will know about it. They say this procedure has been around for years, but I didn’t know a thing about it until recently.
I’ve struggled with heavy heavy periods for quite some time. After I finished breastfeeding the twins, my periods were never the same, they became a major curse to my life. Let’s face it, it was sooooo very nice to not have my period while I was pregnant with the twins & while I breastfed them for 22 months. I mean that whole entire part of it, was WONDERFUL.
But after the breastfeeding, my periods of course, returned. Heavier than ever before. I’ll refrain from giving all the details, but the periods I was experiencing were life altering. Social changing. Activity changing. Mood changing. And zapped all the energy right from under me. I never knew they could fix this problem without having a complete hysterectomy. I always thought I would have to deal with it, until menopause.
I was so wrong.
A good friend of mine had the Nova Sure Procedure done a few months ago. This was the first I had heard about it. I just couldn’t believe what she was telling me.
“Really??? What? No, way! You mean to tell me that they can get rid of whatever causes you to have your period in 5 minutes? In the doctors office? Really?”
She said it really was nothing. It was done in like a few minutes & the only thing you experience is major cramping the day before the procedure & the day or two after. But it was worth it! It seemed to good to be true.
But sure enough, I’m here to tell you ~ IT”S TRUE. I had the procedure done about 2 weeks ago. I already feel different. My mood is different, my outlook is different. It is amazing. Their claim is that for some women, you may still have some spotting, but nothing like a full period. For others you will have nothing. It’s done, it’s over with. Obviously, you can click on the website or ask your gyno & they can give you info. But I can’t tell you the difference already. I am no doctor, not even close to a nurse. But I know I should have had this done a long time ago. I think we as moms, put ourselves last for everything. “I’ll do it when the kids are a little older” or “There’s no time, I’ll wait until we can do it.” Let me tell you, if you are suffering from heavy periods, and are done having kids – do it! Life is too short. Don’t allow your periods to control your life.
It’s freedom, it’s opening up doors again to real social life, your moods will be different, your outlook on life will be different. It’s amazing the freedom I already feel from it. Remember, I am not a professional. I’m just a mom, who is kicking herself in the rear for not having it done sooner! I’m the mom who is now wearing the white pants or the white shorts (even though my rear is really too big to be wearing white) – I don’t care. I feel like we can go, be, do whatever we want. I’m not holding us back now. Looking back, it’s hard to realize how much it really did hold me back on doing a lot of things. I never really realized until recently how much it did. Life is too short to limit yourself and your whole entire family. Yes, the procedure was for me, but I realize it was also for my family. They are the ones who have to live with me & deal with me. So it’s freedom for all of us, with no restrictions.
If you have questions here’s the website. This is not a sponsored post or anything. This is just me, excited about a new outlook on life for me & my family. If you are even thinking about it, check into it. You’ll be amazed just how good you’ll feel shortly after it’s all done. I really feel like I can do almost anything now. It’s the best feeling – ever!
