For two weeks after the proceedure, I had clear, watery bloody,
brown discharge. Week three, thicker, yellow/brown/red type
discharge. Jan 7th started cramping and sure enough, a period
arrived. I was getting by on mini pads/panty liners but had
to switch to a full maxi pad. Although previously to the proceedure
I had very heavy and very clotty periods, I must admit, the clots
and blood flow were not as bad.
after 4 days, it stopped and went brown. Three days after
that, another period starts where I am back to wearing
maxi pads. I have been bleeding for close to 12 days now.
I think I have worn period protection for close 6 weeks every day!
I would greatly appreciate if anyone is or has had this. I have read
the healing time varies greatly. No bleeding, just discharge or bleeding.
I am bloated & puffy. No fever, no pain, just day after day of
moderate bleeding. There is and has been a very weird burning
sensation that comes and goes. Almost like a stinging sensation but
I don't feel it is associated with an infection of any sort.
There is no foul smell although there was a odd smell that lasted
a few days when the discharge changed from thinner to thicker but
there is a slight odor change (?) again I am not worried .. yet!
I am more concerned and bummed out about this continual pad
use and bleeding.
Any thoughts and offerings of similiar situations would be greatly
I go to the gym alot and have been intimate with my husband, I wonder if either of those have hurt my healing. I didn't do anything until my doctor gave me the go ahead though.
In reading all these experiences no one has posted or from what I have seen more than a few posts so I am assuming most are happy and not having any problems.
This procedure can fail. It also take anywhere from 3 to 12 months to get regular or no periods. Most have a HUGE difference in bleeding and pain. So the Novasure is a good tool to have if you suffer like most of us on here from painful heavy nasty prolonged periods.
I am glad I did it ! Its still a work in progress though.
I still think my body is healing as my periods are still irregular and every month is different. Here is my journal since the discharge disappeared: 12/08 - 2 periods; 1/09 - 1 period; 2/09 - nothing; 3-09 - 1 period; 4-09 nothing; 5-09 1 period; 6-09 1 period; 7-09 1 period, but it was late; 8/09 - nothing and 9/09 - 1 so far.
Once the discharge disappeared things started looking up! Like most here my discharge was light pink, eventually it became clear....still felt the gushes, but it was completely clear. Once it turned clear, it eventually went away...but it seemed like forever! I understand the frustration! Hope this helps. I'll keep you posted as I move closer to the 1 year annivesary!
Some one tell me I'm over reacting and this will get better.
I just had mine done 10/19/12 and was out riding 4-wheelers and muddin the next day. There has been very little to no discharge after the first week and I am noticing that I am able to get into a size smaller in my jeans. After reading everyone's posts I am hoping that I do not have to deal with those horrible cramps again. My sister in law also had the procedure done a year ago and no periods, no cramps. I hope this is the case for me.
I just had my procedure done 13 days ago. I go for my two week check up tomorrow. I have felt fine the whole time. I've had a very light discharge this whole time. I'm suppose to start my period any day now so I'm curious to see what happens. I've read a few horror stories and am now a lil worried. I know everyone heals differently. I just want to knoof how much longer do I have to wear panty liners.
