Endometrectomy, also called endometrial ablation, consists of the removal of the endometrium, the layer that surrounds the uterus. It is one of the main indications for hysteroscopy for women who have abundant bleeding during their period and do not wish to have children.
Endometrectomy is a simple operation that can prevent complications. It can be performed using high-frequency radio waves, laser, electric current, freezing, etc.
By removing the endometrium, female fertility is compromised. However, it is important to know that it is not a method of female sterilization. This means that pregnancy can occur, but will result in high risk or end in miscarriage.
