Thanks for the query

Novasure or thermal ballon (thermachoice) are the methods to burn the endometrium

In thermachoice hot water ballon is used and in novasure a mesh is put inside and electric cauterisation of the enometrium is done

These are the methods for the women having heavy bleeding or menorrhagia

As you are reaching menopause you shouldn't go for it only for the sake of herpes

Are you having heavy periods ?

There is medical treatment for herpes

Moreover the procedure will ablate endometrium only , what about the external parts , it is not going to resolve

I don't think it is a suitable thing to do

Best wishes

Any other query is most welcome
Take care
