Brief Answer: avoid intercourse for 4 weeks Detailed Answer: Dear member, Thanks for writing to healthcare magic. In novasure or endometrial ablation procedure there will be discharge from the uterus and the lining of uterus will take time to heal. Sex during this period will introduce infection into the uterus causing enomyometritis which is infection of uterus. Hence it is recommended that you abstain from sex. You can discuss resuming sex during your follow up visit with your doctor after 4 weeks Thanks Dr Bhagyashree
