what is post-ablation (hta) tubal sterilization syndrome?

Uncommon but painful: Women with excessive vaginal bleeding may choose to remove (destroy, ablate) the uterine lining instead of removing the uterus. Months or years after ablation, small amounts of residual monthly bleeding in the uterus builds up fluid in the blocked (tied, sterilized) tubes, causing swelling and pain in the tubes. A women can ask her ob-gyn doctor what the risk is for different ablation techniques.

Pelvic pain ?: Post ablation/tubal ligation syndrome is infrequent, but causes severe cramping, pain, bleeding and back pain. The cause is bleeding from shedding endometrial cells with the bleeding blocked by scar tissue from the ablation. Ask your gyn surgeon about low dose oral contraceptives and taking them without a break ( no placebos) for 4-5 packs, thereby decreasing episodes of bleeding (periods).
