Hysteroscopic endometrial ablation represents a minimally invasive, safe, and effective means for menstrual blood loss.
As such, gynecologists might recommend uterine ablation in cases like:
- When the patient experiences heavy periods
- Long menstrual bleeding lasting longer than eight days
- Anemia as a result of the profound blood loss
Options for the treatment of heavy menses and abnormal menses are both medical and surgical. Often women will elect for medical treatment such as oral hormone therapy or a hormonal IUD prior to choosing an endometrial ablation.
