I still have periods lasting 5-6 days even though i had an endometrial ablation 5 months ago. The blood is brown with clots. Should i be concerned?
Not concerned: Not likely to be a serious concern. Likely this represents a relative failure of the ablation. Perfect outcomes (no bleeding or amenorrhea) happen generally less than half the time depending on the specific type of problem and type of ablation you had. Bleeding as before or heavier is a true failure and happens less than 10% of the time. What you describe is a common outcome, still a success. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
