What is Mara?
The Mara Water Vapor Ablation System provides an endometrial ablation treatment that uses natural water vapor to reduce your heavy periods. This two-minute treatment* can be performed conveniently in your doctor’s office without incisions or the need for general anesthesia.
*The water vapor treatment takes 2 minutes, as part of an approximate 4-minute procedure. Total time in office may vary and will include preparation and post-procedure observation.
How does Mara work?
- Mara uses natural water vapor to gently treat the lining of the uterus, which is the source of heavy menstrual bleeding in women who have not reached menopause. When treated, it can no longer regrow to cause heavy monthly bleeding.
- Mara is only for women who no longer want to become pregnant in the future.
- The water vapor treatment takes 2 minutes, as part of a 4-minute total procedure.
- Automated SmartSeal™ safety features ensure uterine cavity sealing and IntegrityPro™ provides cervical temperature monitoring.
The Mara Water Vapor Ablation System is indicated to ablate the endometrial lining of the uterus in premenopausal women with menorrhagia due to benign causes for whom childbearing is complete.

Important Safety Information
Mara Water Vapor Ablation System is used to treat the lining of the uterus (endometrium) in premenopausal women with heavy menstrual bleeding due to benign causes for whom childbearing is complete. Pregnancy following the Mara procedure can be dangerous. The Mara procedure should not be performed if you have suspected uterine cancer, pre-cancerous conditions of the uterine lining, some previous surgeries or medications that can thin the uterine muscle wall, a prior endometrial ablation, an active genital or urinary tract infection, an IUD currently in place, or undiagnosed abnormal vaginal bleeding. Your physician will need to decide if this treatment is appropriate for you.
Mara does not protect women from future pregnancy. Patients will still need to use birth control. Rare but serious risks include, but are not limited to, uterine injury, infection, thermal injury, and serious complications in future pregnancies. Temporary side effects may include cramping, nausea, abdominal pain and distension, vomiting, vaginal infection, and inflammation of the uterine lining. Contact your physician if you experience a possible side effect related to Mara.
