In brief: 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.

Irregular bleeding can be deblitating and embarassing. Check with your ob/gyn to evaluate your bleeding. The first thing we do is a biopsy to make sure that you don't have cancer. The second diagnostic test is an ultrasound or sonohysterogram to evaluate your uterine cavity to see if you are a good candidate for an ablation and which type might be best for you. The endometrial ablation is not contraception and you must be finished having children to choose this procedure.
