Pain After Novasure Endometrial Ablation
PCOS, Endometriosis, Heavy Cycles, 33yo, tubal ligation 3 yrs ago. Would an endometrial ablation lessen my symptoms/cancer risks?
Maybe not: Endometrial cancer can be obscured by endometrial ablations if it is not ruled out prior to the procedure by biopsy. Many women continue to have bleeding post endometrial ablation procedures, and the most likely conclusive treatment is hysterectomy if you no longer desire children. ...Read more
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
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. There is some cramping that can be expected.If you are having bad cramps, pain or a foul discharge, these could be signs of an infection. Follow up with the surgeon who performed the procedure.They can and should tell you what to expect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unusual choice: Generally an iud is not placed after an endomtrial ablation; some pain after either can occur so it may be difficult to assess but endure its not a UTI or that the hardware isnt infected after being placed into the post surgical uterus. That is low probaility but this has not been sutidied and the uterus will scar, hopfully not affecting the iud long term; it is likely trnasient but watch fr fever. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not had endometrial biopsy back yet. Having zoladex (goserelin) injection Friday. Ready to have endometrial ablation 5 weeks. What symptoms of injection?
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

Had endometrial ablation 3 yrs ago, have severe pelvic pain; unhealthy uterus due to hemorrhage, want to avoid laparoscopic supravervical hysterectomy?
Bleed after ablation: An endometrial ablation is done to reduce your menses to a normal flow. About 40% of women have no menses after the procedure, depending on the type of ablation. That being said, it is typical to spot, stain or discharge for up to 6 weeks. Finally you should wait to see how you are doing at 3 months, before considering the procedure a failure. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Been on zoladex (goserelin) for 4 weeks, ready for endometrial resection next week. Having prolonged menstral bleeding & pain. Is this normal?
Yes: There are many women who have had successful pregnancies after uae. The data is relatively weak, but seems to indicate that fertility after embolization is similar to fertility after multiple myomectomy. A patient needs to discuss the details of her individual situation with her doctors before deciding on a therapy. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
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
Ablation: Most women experience discharge and spotting for several weeks after an endometrial ablation. 7 weeks of discharge is not common and is probably not normal. I advise you to contact your obgyn with your concerns. I would recommend an exam and possibly ultrasound to see if there is evidence of infection or hematometra, which is are rare complications of the procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No, not really: Adenomyosis is when the lining cells of the uterus are located just deep to the lining (but still within the uterus). It can be thought of as endometriosis of the uterus. Hysterectomy would remove this. Almost all fibroids are in the uterus also and would be removed with hysterectomy, although there are fibroids on rare occasions outside the uterus which could be missed/reoccur but very rare. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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
