Endometrial Ablation (Definition)

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

I had a hysteroscopy, d&c, and the novasure procedure done on 9-4-12. I am still spotting a month later, is this normal? If so, when will it go away?

I had a hysteroscopy, d&c, and the novasure procedure done on 9-4-12. I am still spotting a month later, is this normal? If so, when will it go away?

That's OK: Endometrial ablation is typically done by using thermal or rf , (radio frequency), to destroy the endometrial lining. Imagine a burn on your skin. At first, the wound "weeps" fluid before healing. This is similar to the watery discharge during the 4-6 weeks after an ablation. This is a normal response after the procedure and may cause some spotting or discharge for several weeks. ...Read more

I'm scheduled to have a hysteroscopy, myomectomy and novasure. What should I expect for downtime? I am a single mom and wonder if I'll need help.

I'm scheduled to have a hysteroscopy, myomectomy and novasure. What should I expect for downtime? I am a single mom and wonder if I'll need help.

Quick recovery: These are all minimally invasive gynecological procedures that typically require little downtime and a very short recovery. The exact time is going to vary from person to person and depends on the size and extent of the myomectomy. I have had patients go to work the next day. Discuss the unique aspects of your case with your surgeon for a more specific timeline. ...Read more

I am 56 years old, 3 biopsies (october 2012 last one all benign), 2 sonohysterograms, hysteroscopy, ablation how likely is it that this is cancer?

Insufficient data: Your question can't easily be answered with the information you have given. I am guessing you have uterine bleeding to prompt all this evaluation. Biopsies can be negative if they miss a tumor, but 3 all negative if done by a competent gyn is unlikely to be a false negative, especially if all the other workup is negative. Still, it would depend on what other symptoms and if they persist.. ...Read more

Check with your doc: Ablation works in 90-95% or women, so check as to whether there were circumstances in your situation that put your procedure in the failed category. Cervical cauterization is not a commonly performed procedure these days vs years ago, when it was fairly common. ...Read more
