Possibly: Endometrial ablation is done to reduce menstrual flow, not necessarily eliminate menses. In the best of cases, 40% of women have no menses. The important question is were your menses absent and now back? Also, are they getting heavier? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, then see your gynecologist, maybe there is an alternative treatment such as laparoscopic hysterectomy to help. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

About 2 years ago I had done endometrial ablation and since I had it done I've feeling constantly weird I've been going thru hot flashes mood swings.
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! Read more
