Endometrial Ablation

This is an operation to obliterate as much of the uterine lining as possible. Its aim is to reduce menstrual flow and cause very light periods. Some woman will cease having periods. The 2 techniques I employ are:
These are both day case operations and women experience low abdominal ‘period-like' pain for the first 24 hours. A watery bloody discharge persists for the first month.
Recovery is usually the same as for those having a D&C Hysteroscopy
These methods are only for those women who do not desire future pregnancies and it is unsafe to conceive after these procedures.
A Tubal Ligation may be recommended / performed at the same time
