In brief: It varies

Depending on the type of ablation and the patient your period may normalize or cease completely.
Satisfaction rate is about 80% . It is important to discuss your expectations with your surgeon. Sometimes and ablation can be a poor substitute for a hysterectomy.

In brief: Stops bleeding

An endometrial ablation purposely destroys the "endometrium" or lining of the uterus, in order to stop severe heavy menstrual bleeding.
It is normal to have cramping and pain for the first few days of recovery, which is treated with medication. After that, a woman will not periods at all anymore, or if she does, they will be very light. She will also no longer be able to carry a pregnancy.
