Years after Endometrial Ablation

I had an ednometrial Ablation (Novasure) probably about 7 years ago.  Since then, I have not had a period.  Some light spotting was investigated and cleared up with removal of a stray piece of tissue a few years ago.  No spotting after that.  This past week, I have been extremely moody, probably hormal... kind of wondered if I'm starting "the change" (I am only 41).  But, today I started what looks like a light period, cramps and all.  The amount of blood is beyond mere "spotting," so it has me slightly concerned.  Should I go see my doctor about it or just wait it out?

HI,
It would be best to see your Doctor as this bleeding has occurred after along gap. An internal examination will help rule out local factors like vaginitis or cervical erosion, polyps etc. Also an assessment of the endometrial lining needs to be done with the help of an ultrasound scan.
Hope this helps.
