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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

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.
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
Nope: In good hands, no. Endometrial ablations are done in the or or office, with different types of systems, and your doc will review how the procedure works and what you can expect during and after. Like any procedure, make sure you understand your options, make sure your doc is qualified, and most important - you have to be comfortable with all of it. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Destroying lining: 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 fibroids (pain, urinary frequency). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
