What is Endometrial Ablation?

The removal of the uterine lining with the goal of lowering or stopping menstrual flow is known as endometrial ablation. “Endometrium” is the proper word for the uterus lining. The term “ablation” refers to the act of destroying something. The process is named after these two words.

Endometrial ablation does not require any incisions. Delicate equipment are inserted by the doctor into the canal between your vagina and uterus (cervix).

The equipment used to ablate the endometrium differ depending on the procedure. Extreme cold, heated fluids, microwave energy, or high-energy radiofrequencies could all be used.

Some types of endometrial ablation can be performed in the office of your doctor. Others require the use of an operating room. The size and condition of your uterus will play a role in determining which endometrial ablation procedure is best for you.

Endometrial ablation can either entirely halt a woman’s periods or minimize the amount of bleeding she experiences. The treatment will only be performed on women who are not pregnant and do not wish to become pregnant.

The technique is not intended to address any cancer-related menstruation or uterine disorders.

Endometrial ablation can be done in a variety of ways, including:

Hydrothermal: This procedure includes pumping fluid into the uterus and heating it for 10 minutes, destroying the uterine lining.

Balloon therapy involves inserting a tube into the uterus and filling a balloon with hot fluid. The uterine lining is destroyed as the balloon expands.

High-energy radio waves are used to stretch an electrical mesh that is placed into the uterus. After that, strong radio waves are sent through the mesh, causing it to heat up and damage the uterine lining.

Freezing, also known as cryoablation, is a procedure in which a narrow probe with a cold tip freezes and destroys the uterine lining.

Microwave: Microwaves are used to damage the uterine lining by passing them through the uterus.

When is Endometrial Ablation required ?

If your menstrual periods are exceedingly heavy and can’t be controlled with medication, your doctor may consider this treatment. If you have significant menstrual bleeding that lasts for 8 days or longer, have hemorrhage between cycles, because of your menstruation, or you’ve developed anemia, your doctor may recommend this treatment.

Endometrial ablation is not suggested for women who are postmenopausal or who have:

  • Certain abnormalities of the uterus
  • Cancer of the uterus, or an increased risk of uterine cancer
  • An active pelvic infection

How is Endometrial Ablation done?

Some type of ablations can be done as OPD procedures, while some would need to be done under general anesthesia in an operation theater.

The opening in your cervix must be expanded (dilated) to allow the instruments used in endometrial ablation to pass through. Medication or the insertion of a series of instruments that gradually increase in diameter can dilate your cervix.

Endometrial ablation techniques differ depending on how the endometrium is removed or destroyed. Among the possibilities are:

Electrosurgery: To see within the uterus, a narrow scope is employed. A heated device, such as a wire loop, is fed through the scope and used to carve furrows in the endometrium. General anesthesia is required for electrosurgery.

Cryoablation: Two or three ice balls are created using extreme cold, which freeze and destroy the endometrium. The doctor can monitor the ice balls’ progress using real-time ultrasonography. Each freeze cycle can last up to six minutes, and the number of cycles required is determined by your uterus’ size and shape.

Hot fluid in a free-flowing state: For roughly 10 minutes, heated saline solution is circulated throughout the uterus. This approach has the advantage of being able to treat women who have an irregularly shaped uterus as a result of aberrant tissue growth, such as intracavity lesions or uterine fibroids, which distorts the uterus.

Heated Balloon: A balloon device is introduced into your cervix and filled with hot fluid before being inflated. The treatment might take anywhere from two to ten minutes, depending on the type of balloon device used.

Microwave: Through the cervix, a thin wand is inserted. Microwaves are emitted by the wand, which heat the endometrial tissue. The treatment lasts about three to five minutes.

Radiofrequency: A flexible ablation device is unfurled inside the uterus using a specific equipment. In one to two minutes, the gadget delivers radiofrequency energy, which evaporates the endometrial tissue. After that, the gadget is withdrawn from the uterus.

What is the Recovery after Endometrial Ablation like?

Endometrial ablation has a short recovery period. Here’s a quick rundown of what most ladies go through after the procedure:

  • Within 24 hours, nausea and a strong desire to pee.
  • Cramping or bleeding for a few days.
  • After a week, back to the old schedule.
  • Watery or bloody discharge for up to 3 weeks.

Your surgeon will guide you when you can resume daily activities, as well as more vigorous exercise and sexual activity.

What Results Can I Expect from Endometrial Ablation?

Endometrial ablation is an excellent option for many women because it is minimally invasive and eliminates the need for long-term medication.

Although the ultimate results may take a few months to appear, endometrial ablation usually reduces the amount of blood lost during menstruation. Most women’s periods will be lighter, and some will stop getting them altogether.

Because endometrial ablation is not a sterilization operation, you should keep using contraception. Pregnancy is still conceivable, but it will almost certainly be dangerous and result in a miscarriage.
