Question Anyone know anything about this?

Endometrial ablation
Endometrial ablation is a procedure that uses a lighted viewing instrument (hysteroscope) and other instruments to destroy (ablate) the uterine lining, or endometrium. Endometrial ablation can be done by:

Laser beam (laser thermal ablation).
Heat (thermal ablation), using:
A balloon filled with saline solution that has been heated to 85C (thermal balloon ablation).
Normal saline (heated free fluid).
Electricity, using a resectoscope with a loop or rolling ball electrode.
The endometrium heals by scarring, which usually reduces or prevents uterine bleeding.

Re: Anyone know anything about this?

I had this out patient surgery about 14 years ago because I had fibroid tumors that caused intense bleeding every period. After the surgery I hardly bled which helped my hemogloblin level to build back up, however menopause started about 4 years later. I was 38 at the time of the surgery and became post menopausal at 42.
