I had an endometrial ablation 3 years ago and had great success, no bleeding at all until the last 2 months. I am now experiencing a 2nd period with very heavy cramping and bleeding - is this something I should see my doctor about? After 3 years with no bleeding or discomfort, this seems kind of odd to me! Please advise ASAP .
actually what you are experiencing is normal.
sometimes after a few years a woman will start to have a period again because there were some cells that weren't completely damaged when you had the ablation done, so after time the cells have grown and now you are having a period again. this happens alot and you can do what i did and just get your good ol uterus taken out. i had the ablation and also had my uterus just removed about 8 months ago. best thing i ever did. i have my cervix and tubes and ovaries just not uterus and no period but all the hormones.
I had my ablation done in feb.2004...I have not had a period since then. I actually just got back from having an ultra sound. The doctor wants to take a look inside because she said it is rare for the ablation to last as long as it has with no periods. Statistically most still have light periods after the surgery and some, like me, have none. But eventually the lining can will grow back ( depending on age when you had ablation ) Most women end up repeating the surgery. My doctor is checking me for scar tissue build up to see if that is why i have not had any periods. The scar tissue build up would be from having the ablation. My family doctor had an ablation as well...how ironic....so she does seem to have experience working on her side. Just thought I would try to give you some imput on what I have learned, Hope it helps a bit.
I just had an ablation on the 22 of April, and my doc is surprised I am still having problems bleeding. I am concerned about the fact that I never had heavy periods, I just wanted to quit dealing with them since I took the pill non stop. I figured this was a healthier alternative. I guess I worry that it might be dangerous if you had a thin lining to start with. Any help? I have looked for answers all over the web, but everything is regarding heavy bleeding
I had the ablation done 3 years ago this month. No periods. Then last bam out of no where I'm bleeding like a stuff pig. It feels like all 3 years in 1 period. I tried to get them to give me a hysterectomy years ago. I don't need any of it. Maybe now they will. I'm kinda glad though that it seems normal right on the 3 year mark for this to happen.
