Comment from: AGNP2015, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: November 11

I had my endometrial ablation January of 2012. I elected to have this procedure done because of uterine fibroids which caused considerable pain and excessive bleeding. I was weak and had anemia so I proceeded with this process. I experienced mild cramping post procedure and took some ibuprofen. For a week or so I experienced clear vaginal discharge and that was it. No more menstrual cycles. Fortunately, my physician also performed a tubal ligation on me to prevent future pregnancy. No more problems since this procedure.

I had endometrial ablation 2 years ago but have been experiencing some pain in my lower abdomen and feel bloated since having this procedure done. I have been to the doctors and they have carried out some blood tests. I got a call today to ask me to go and have some more tests done next week as doctor was worried. Now I am worrying terribly, as I had this procedure done to stop the horrific bleeding which I was getting nearly every day for months. It was so bad I had to miss a terrible amount of time off work that in the end I had to leave.
