I have a 2mm lining after an ablation in 2005. Is there a way to thicken or "repair" my uterus?

I have a 2mm lining after an ablation in 2005. Is there a way to thicken or "repair" my uterus?

Endometrial ablation: The purpose of endometrial ablation is to help stop heavy bleeding by burning and thinning the endometrial lining of the uterus. A thin line on ultrasound is expected and desirable. Is there a reason why you want to thicken your lining? Do not try to get pregnant with the endometrial ablation because it may lead to a placenta accreta. ...Read more

I can't decide between ablation & hysterectomy. Is ablation permanent? I've heard that the lining will grow back over time.

I can't decide between ablation & hysterectomy.  Is ablation permanent?  I've heard that the lining will grow back over time.

Yes, it's permanent: However the results are variable. About 10% of the time it will have no effect while maybe half the time it will eliminate your periods entirely. Ablation is a much easier. safer. and quicker procedure. If the results are unsatisfactory then the hysterectomy can be done later. ...Read more

How concerning would you find a 1cm regrowth of endometrial lining within 2 months of endometrial ablation in a 27 yr old female?

How concerning would you find a 1cm regrowth of endometrial lining within 2 months of endometrial ablation in a 27 yr old female?

Endometrium: It really depend on what type of ablation you had. Also, the scar tissue created can sometimes be read by radiologist as endometrial thickness. I think a lot of radiologist have issues reading ultrasounds after ablations even when they are notified you had one. Because I don't know what type you had I can 't give too much more info. ...Read more

Had endometrial ablation several years ago.Periods became much lighter, but a few times a year it's heavy.How could this be If lining was frozen off.

Had endometrial ablation several years ago.Periods became much lighter, but a few times a year it's heavy.How could this be If lining was frozen off.

Tissue left: There are several ways of a ablating the endometrial lining but there is no way of 100% eliminating all endometrial tissue. Most people are heavy with the reduction in bleeding. However they can experience recurrent bleeding. If it's still heavy see your Gyn for alternative options. I usually offer multiple options that are suitable to my patients preferences to control the bleeding. Best wishes ...Read more

I had a novasure ablation done 4 years ago but now i want another child, my doctor said my womb lining is 4mm thick what are my chances?

I had a novasure ablation done 4 years ago but now i want another child, my doctor said my womb lining is 4mm thick what are my chances?

Very poor: After endometrial ablation, there is usually not enough endometrium (uterine lining) for a pregnancy to safely implant. So if pregnancy occurs, the placenta tends to grow into the uterine muscle. That's dangerous because it won't separate after delivery, and severe bleeding can occur, which can be life threatening. I would strongly advise against you getting pregnant again. ...Read more

Common, but: Bleeding after an ablation is quite common, there are different reasons: 1) remaining areas of active endometrium, new growth of uterine or cervical polyps, fibroids. You will need (and should get soon) an exam with possible imaging studies to determine the cause of your bleeding. ...Read more
