Should be quick: One of the advantages of the endometrial ablation is the quick recovery. This is a minimally invasive procedure; most patients are back to normal in about a week. There is some cramping that can be expected. If you are having bad cramps, pain or a foul discharge, these could be signs of an infection. Follow up with the surgeon who performed the procedure. They can and should tell you what to expect. ...Read more

Over the next few months you should notice a gradual lightening of your cycle. Some patients do not show maximum benefit in the first few cycles so give it time.

Ablation does not provide pregnancy prevention, it isn't sterilization. ...Read more
