Symptoms After Endometrial Ablation
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 doesn't address the problem (fibroid) directly, may not work at all, and doesn't address the bulk symptoms often seen with ...Read more
Varies: The amount of tissue destroyed varies with different ablation procedures. With most there is usually a very small amount of tissue that remains, which explains why not everyone stops bleeding altogether.

Treatment for period: An endometrial ablation is a procedure to destroy the lining of the uterus to eliminate or minimize the amount of bleeding during menstrual cycles. There are five different techniques and most can be done in the office under local anesthesia. This does not effect your hormones or cause menopause. It is a great option and helps patients avoid major surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
Endometrial ablation: If your uterus is of a normal size, you don't have cancer, and you are not interested in future child-bearing you could be a candidate for an endometrial ablation. You should have your dr. Check for reasons of bleeding before the procedure and I suggest an ultrasound to measure the uterus before ablation therapy.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Destroys the lining: An endometrial ablation is a surgical procedure that destroys the lining of the uterus. It treats menorrhagia (heavy periods). There are several different types of ablations each involving various ways of destroying the uterine lining (i.e. Thermal heat, electrocautery, laser, etc). Ablations are done in the office, a day surgery unit, or an operating room depending on the type.See 1 more doctor answer
Endometrial ablation: An endometrial ablation is a procedure wherein the dr. Places an instrument inside the uterus in to the uterin cavity and then uses either sound waves or heat to "burn" the endometrial lining of the uterus which is normally about 10cm thick. This helps prevent future episodes of vaginal bleeding.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
