Endometrial ablation a month ago. Bleeding after non penetration stimulation, why?

Bleed after ablation: An endometrial ablation is done to reduce your menses to a normal flow. About 40% of women have no menses after the procedure, depending on the type of ablation. That being said, it is typical to spot, stain or discharge for up to 6 weeks. Finally you should wait to see how you are doing at 3 months, before considering the procedure a failure. Hope this helps! ...Read more

How long do u need to be off work after endometrial ablation? Do u have a lot of pain and bleeding afterward?

Outpatient surgery: An endometrial ablation is an outpatient procedure. In my patient population many patients go back to work the next day. Often, I will do their ablation on a Friday so they have the weekend and go back to work on Monday.

I am 26 years old. I have three children and really regretting my tubal ligation and endometrial ablation. I do not bleed at all but occasionally have brown thick discharge. Is there any type of procedures and medications that would help me to carry a chi

Surrogacy: Its where you find someone that will carry a baby for you. Your hubby's sperm is added to eggs harvested from you and they use IVF to plant the result in a surrogate. This is quite expensive and not covered by insurance, but it is a way for you to have a kid. Otherwise you are done. ...Read more

I had an endometrial ablation in Feb 2017. Had slight bleeding in March and then no bleeding at all since then. I feel like I'm pregnant. Can I be?

It's Possible: Remember, an ablation is used to decrease the amount of menstrual bleeding and sometimes stops your menstrual cycles completely. However, it's not birth control and we usually only perform them with permanent sterilization. If you don't have effective birth control, check a pregnancy test ASAP. A pregnancy following an ablation is considered high risk and you should see an OB Physician. Take care ...Read more

I had an endometrial ablation done 2+ years ago & since then have been great! All of the sudden I now have severe cramps & bleeding. Is this normal?

Can be: I see that you are 29 years old. The younger a woman is when she has the ablation, the more likely that she may need additional treatment. I would definitely see your ob/gyn and get tested to make sure that this bleeding is pre-cancerous with a uterine biopsy. And then also you can talk about treatment options from here. Best of luck. ...Read more

I had an endometrial ablation done one year a go I have recently had some bleeding and cramping is that normal.?

It can be: Depending on how your ablation was done, you can have even cycles of bleeding and cramping. Returning to your GYN for a check up is strongly recommended. If your bleeding is substantially better than prior, then this is still considered a success. If you are aiming for no bleeding at all, then you may need additional surgery. This all depends on your circumstances and goals. ...Read more
