In brief: Uncommon but painful
Women with excessive vaginal bleeding may choose to remove (destroy, ablate) the uterine lining instead of removing the uterus.
Months or years after ablation, small amounts of residual monthly bleeding in the uterus builds up fluid in the blocked (tied, sterilized) tubes, causing swelling and pain in the tubes. A women can ask her ob-gyn doctor what the risk is for different ablation techniques.
