Periods are one of the inconvenient realities of being a woman. For a small minority, they are more than that. If you are one of many women who struggle with heavy menstrual bleeding then you may well dread the start of your period. You may have tried medications, or simply not like the idea of having to take them long term. Endometrial Ablation in west London offers you an alternative.

What is Endometrial Ablation?

Endometrial ablation is an increasingly popular treatment option. During the procedure, the lining of the uterus is physically removed. As a result, future periods are lighter. The procedure is relatively non-invasive, as there is no need for cutting. This means that the recovery period is relatively short, with many women being back to their usual routine within a week.

As this is a surgical procedure it should not be undertaken without consultation with an experienced gynaecologist. It is also not suitable for everyone. If you are considering having children in the future then this procedure is not advised.

Types of Endometrial Ablation

There are two main types of endometrial ablation procedures. Resectoscopic and Non-Resectoscopic. The major difference is about the type of instruments that are used. Resectoscpic methods rely on the use of a scope to visually guide removal. These are often called first-generation procedures. Non-Resectoscopic procedures use specially designed devices to remove the lining of the womb evenly. These are considered second or third-generation procedures.
