Do you suffer from unusually heavy periods that last too long and cause fatigue or even anemia? Endometrial ablation might be an option for you.
Why it’s done:
-Unusually heavy periods, sometimes defined as soaking a pad or tampon every two hours or less
-Bleeding that lasts longer than eight days
-Anemia from excessive blood loss
By surgically destroying (ablates) the lining of the uterus (endometrium), the endometrial
ablation reduces menstrual flow, and in some women, it may stop completely.
Some types of endometrial ablation can be done in your doctor’s office, and no incisions are
needed. Factors such as the size and condition of your uterus will help determine which
endometrial ablation method is most appropriate. If you think you might be a candidate for this
procedure, contact us at Walnut Lake OBGYN & Wellness to schedule your consultation
