I had ablation done a year ago just got period is that normal?

I had ablation done a year ago just got period is that normal?

It can happen: While many women will stop having their periods after an endometrial ablation, the rate of amenorrhea (no periods) is less than 50%). So, it is entirely possible that you may start to menstruate even years after having had an ablation. If it is regular, it is nothing to be concerned about. If it is irregular, extremely heavy or very long, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

Not uncommon: Many women will resume bleeding after having an ablation. If the bleeding is not heavy, painful or problematic in some other way then I would not worry. If the bleeding is problematic then you would need to be evaluated. ...Read more

Vaginal odor: There are several causes of bad smelling vaginal discharge and testing is needed to determine the cause and treatment. The most likely is bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. It causes a watery discharge with a fishy odor. It is not sexually transmitted and your partner does not require treatment. It is treated with antibiotics. ...Read more

I had tubal ligation in 2011. I had ablation in may 2013. I still have a period, but it's much lighter. Do i need to take more birth control?

I had tubal ligation in 2011. I had ablation in may 2013. I still have a period, but it's much lighter. Do i need to take more birth control?

Not necessarily: You would have no need for birth control if your tubes are blocked. Hormonals could be used to stop your menses altogether, as a convenience, or a touch up ablation might finish the job.I would discuss this with the gyn who did the procedure to see what might be best for your situation. ...Read more

Ablation?: You definitely need to be evaluated by your gynecologist or fertility specialist. The fact that you have continued to have " normal" periods is encouraging for your ability to get pregnant in my opinion. ...Read more

Had an ablation 2 years ago with no periods or spotting for two years  is it common to be spotting now?

Could be: I would have your GYN MD check the nature of the bleeding to be sure that it is not a sign of endometrial cancer. Unfortunately, endometrial ablation does not prevent bleeding for 100% of the patients. ...Read more

I had an ablation done nine years ago and I started spotting. Will my periods come back?

I had an ablation done nine years ago and I started spotting. Will my periods come back?

Possible, unlikely: As you know, the ablation scars uterine tissue preventing bleeding. Sometimes these scars break down or fibroids are growing in the uterine wall behind them. If you have had no bleeding for 9 years, and now spotting, see your gynecologist. It may just be random, occasional spotting or something that will cause more bleeding. An ultrasound will probably be helpful to see what is going on. Good luck ...Read more
