In brief: Individual issue

It is different for for each woman, very generally if you are a candidate for ablation, it is quicker, easier and less risky and wear and tear on the body.
It improves your periods about 90% of the time.

Depends on the reasons for the surgery

In brief: Ablation

Both procedures have similar indications, yet sometimes only one can be used.
If your uterus is normal sized ablation is a good choice.Yet remember that in 5 years almost 20% of people will return for a hysterectomy. Hysterectomy once done solves the bleeding problem forever, yet more riskier to perform compared with ablation.In the end it is your choice, based on your personal values.
