Cervical stenosis: Sometimes the cervical opening will scar shut after ablation and not allow any bleeding to pass. As it builds up, the uterus will cramp to try and force it out and this can be very painful. See your doc for a sono. If this is the case, it can usually be relieved by passing a small instrument to open the cervix again. Good luck!

See your doctor.: You may have retained blood in your uterus. This can happen after an endometrial ablation and can be diagnosed by ultrasound. In some cases the blood can be released but it may require a hysterectomy.
