    Question Uterine Balloon Therapy

    Has anyone out there had Utrine Balloon Therapy. I am 48 and have problems with my periods. Irregular shedding to be exact. All this means is that I break through bleed in small amounts for about a week after my period. The doctor suggested this procedure. A balloon is inserted and the utrine lining is heated so that it is sloughed off. Same as utrine ablation but non surgical. If anyone has any input to this procedure I would love to hear it. It could leave one period free. I always thought I would love that but now I am not so sure. Getting older is harder than I thought.

    Re: Uterine Balloon Therapy

    I think you are referring to Uterine Ablation maybe??
    I have not personally had this done but a dear friend did and she couldn't say enough wonderful things about it.
    She bled VERY heavily and this stopped her periods for months....

    sorry...just re-reading your post...
    I thought heating or cryo to remove the uterine lining was considered ablation.
    It is considered "surgical" but I don't believe surgery is involved....

    anyone else more clued in?
