Varies: Most ablations are done with some form of anesthesia such as IV sedation, local injections, or even being put to sleep. I have found that most patients have some cramping after, but it is rarely considered severe.

GYN procedure: Endometrial ablation is a treatment to destroy the endometrial lining of the uterus. This is usually done for excessive or abnormal uterine bleeding, when fertility is not desired.
