Endometrial Ablation - Chester County Ob/Gyn Associates

Endometrial ablation is used to treat many causes of heavy bleeding during menstruation. In most cases, women with heavy bleeding are treated first with medication. If heavy bleeding cannot be controlled with medication, endometrial ablation may be used. Endometrial ablation destroys a thin layer of the lining of the uterus and stops the menstrual flow in many women. In some women, menstrual bleeding does not stop but is reduced to normal or lighter levels. If ablation does not control heavy bleeding, further treatment or surgery may be required. Endometrial ablation should not be done in women past menopause.

It is not recommended for women with certain medical conditions, including

  • Disorders of the uterus or endometrium (such as an endometrium that is too thin)
  • Endometrial hyperplasia
  • Cancer of the uterus
  • Recent pregnancy
  • Current or recent infection of the uterus
