Uterrine ablation is a procedure used to destroy the thin lining of the uterus that bleeds each month. It is often destroyed with heat but can be done with freezing (cryoablation). Must be family complete. When performed for fibroid bleeding doesnt address the problem (fibroid) directly, may not work at all, and doesn't address the bulk symptoms often seen with ...Read more
Is it reasonable to want a hysterectomy, endometrial ablation, or anything to stop my periods permanently?
Maybe, consider risk: A hysterectomy is much too risky to do just to stop normal periods. However, the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud or depoprovera are low risk birth control methods that are likely to stop periods. An ablation is relatively low risk but does not provide birth control. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
Had endometrial ablation several years ago.Periods became much lighter, but a few times a year it's heavy.How could this be If lining was frozen off.
Tissue left: There are several ways of a ablating the endometrial lining but there is no way of 100% eliminating all endometrial tissue. Most people are heavy with the reduction in bleeding. However they can experience recurrent bleeding. If it's still heavy see your Gyn for alternative options. I usually offer multiple options that are suitable to my patients preferences to control the bleeding. Best wishes ...Read more

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
I had an endometrial ablation 8 years ago when I was 27. My heavy periods returned about a year ago. Did my lining grow back? I didn't know it could
Common, but: Bleeding after an ablation is quite common, there are different reasons: 1) remaining areas of active endometrium, new growth of uterine or cervical polyps, fibroids. You will need (and should get soon) an exam with possible imaging studies to determine the cause of your bleeding. ...Read more
Is conception after endometrial ablation & tubal ligation possible & safe if still having normal periods?
Possible....: But not likely. The tubal ligation blocks your tubes so hopefully the egg and sperm don't meet. The ablation attempts to destroy the lining of the uterus so your periods are lighter. We don't recommend pregnancy after an ablation because the risk of miscarriage is so high. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Been having frequents heavy periods. Due to have endometrial ablation in 5 weeks. Had zoladex (goserelin). Will this help calm my periods before op?
Zoladex (goserelin) will take: about one month to work. It sometimes will make your bleeding worse for about 2 weeks, then it will get better. But, everyone's body responds just a little differently, so there is no way to guess whether how your bleeding will proceed before the ablation. ...Read more

I had an endometrial ablation in August 2016. Within a few weeks I had a very light period and a month later I had a heavy period. Is that normal?
I had an endometrial ablation 3 yrs ago and my periods have become very light. However, once every several months I have a very heavy period. Why?
Effectiveness: Endometrial ablation is a great tool to help women with heavy bleeding and avoid a possible hysterectomy. I see you are 42, so you had the procedure at 39? The rate of women in whom it doesn't work, is around 15%. Of those, some go on to have hysterectomy. It could be because of the size of your uterine cavity at procedure? Or your hormone production? Or the surgeon who performed it? ...Read more
I have been on my period for 32 days now. I had an endometrial ablation done almost 3 years ago and am concerned about this occurring post-ablation.
Needs Evaluation: In some women, the effects of a uterine ablation don't last forever. Sometimes the problem comes back. Bleeding like this is certainly annoying and needs to be evaluated to be sure; however, in the end, it usually doesn't mean anything serious is wrong. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 52 years old. I had an endometrial ablation over 10 years ago and have not had a period since then. Can i still get pregnant?
Endometrial ablation refers to procedures that use energy to damage or destroy the lining of the uterus that normally build up in preparation of pregnancy. If no pregnancy happens, the lining is shed as a period. There are several different types of ablation-thermal heat, radio frequency, and freezing. All of them are good options but some might be better in certain situations. ...Read more
