Mirena After Five Years
I am 24 years old. Tubes tied three years ago. I've had two periods a week apart. With Cramping and very heavy bleeding....
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

It may not mean anything specific.: If your menstrual periods are still regular, it may not mean anything specific. On the other hand some hormonal disorders such as PCOS and hyperthyroidism may result in changes in menstrual flow.
