Genesys HTA™ System

The Genesys HTA System therapy is an outpatient procedure that uses heated saline to treat the uterine lining, or endometrium. Once treated, most women no longer experience the symptoms or effects of a heavy period. Many women stop having their period altogether.

Treatment With HTA

The Genesys HTA System works by circulating heated saline throughout the uterus in order to ablate the lining of the uterine walls, also known as the endometrium. The procedure can be performed at the hospital or potentially in your doctor's office.1

Genesys HTA Procedure Animation

Hundreds of thousands of women have been successfully treated by the HTA™ System. The majority of women see a dramatic decrease in the length and heaviness of their period.2 Once treated, most women no longer experience the symptoms or effects of a heavy period. Many women stop having their period altogether.1

In a clinical trial, after three years the majority of women reported a reduction of bleeding to normal levels or less.1 In patients that completed the study, 98% of women were satisfied with their periods.2

It is important for you to speak with your doctor to discuss all the options for the treatment of your heavy menstrual bleeding.

Is Genesys HTA Right For Me?

You may be a candidate for the Genesys HTA System procedure if you are seeking relief from the symptoms of heavy menstrual bleeding and:

  • Feel your heavy bleeding interferes with your quality of life
  • Are frustrated or depressed by your heavy bleeding
  • Wish to potentially avoid a hysterectomy or the side effects of hormone therapy for treatment of your heavy bleeding
  • Are premenopausal
  • Are not interested in having (more) children

Only you and your physician can decide if this is the right treatment for you. Your physician may want to perform preliminary tests, such as a pap smear or an ultrasound, to determine what is causing your heavy bleeding.

Genesys HTA System Treatment Isn't For Everyone

The Genesys HTA System therapy is not an appropriate treatment for your heavy menstrual bleeding if:

  • You are pregnant
  • You may want to have (more) children
  • You have gone through menopause

In addition, Genesys HTA System therapy is not appropriate if:

  • You have an active genital or urinary tract infection
  • You have an active pelvic inflammatory disease or pyosalpinx
  • You have known or suspected endometrial carcinoma or premalignant change to the endometrium, such as adenomatous hyperplasia
  • You have an anatomical or pathologic condition in which weakness of the myometrium can exist, such as a classic cesarean section (vertical incision) or transmural myomectomy
  • If you have an intrauterine device, (IUD) it would need to be removed prior to an ablation
  • Risks and Considerations of the Genesys HTA System

Family Planning Considerations

You should not have a Genesys HTA System procedure if you desire to get pregnant in the future.
Although endometrial ablation significantly reduces the chances for pregnancy, it does not prevent you from getting pregnant. A pregnancy after endometrial ablation would be high risk for both mother and child. Be sure to discuss contraception or sterilization options with your physician prior to the Genesys HTA System procedure.
