If I undergo endometrial ablation, will I stop menstruating? What are some possible negative side effects of this operation?
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.

Cramping & discharge: In the first few hours it is normal to have cramping. Over the next few days to weeks you may notice discharge as the destroyed endometrium passes. 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. I hope you have a great result from this minimally invasive option for heavy periods. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Too young.: Endometrial ablation (destroying the uterine lining to reduce menstrual bleeding) is great if you are 45 and done having children but isn't for people under 35 (generally).

Ablation does not provide pregnancy prevention, it isn't sterilization. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Depends on problem: If the main problem is heavy bleeding then an endometrial ablation is a safer minimally invasive first start. It is a simple procedure which can be done in the office under local anesthesia with minimal to no time off for recovery. If there are other problems then hysterectomy may be a better options.

This is not uncommon: The tissue you described is the residual tissue burned during the ablation. I've heard it described by novasure patients like that. It's also not uncommon to have some bleeding after an endometrial ablation. Sometimes regular periods may return after several weeks to years. It is more common to have light bleeding. You should discuss this with your doctor at a future visit. It is not urgent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
