Women with abnormal uterine bleeding that do not desire to get pregnant can be treated with by a simple surgical procedure called an endometrial ablation. This procedure is an outpatient procedure that is done under light sedation.
The ablation will destroy the lining of the uterus. Some women will still have some bleeding following an ablation, while a majority of women will no longer experience a period after this surgery. The doctor will typically perform the ablation using a mesh electrode array (Novasure) to ablate the endometrium.
