No: If you still have heavy menses 2 years after an endometrial ablation, this is considered a failure. It is important to understand that 15% of ablations fail, higher if you have fibroids. There is no indication to repeat an ablation, not even another type. You may want to consider a laparoscopic supra cervical hysterectomy. Our physicians do this as an outpt procedure, back to work in a week!
