Uncommon but painful: Women with excessive vaginal bleeding may choose to remove (destroy, ablate) the uterine lining instead of removing the uterus.

An alternative to surgery is to suppress ovarian function with hormones and see if the pain gets better. Sometimes, however, pain can be due to the scar tissue, which hormone therapy will not help. ...Read more
