Heavy menstrual periods and endometrial ablation

Metrorrhagia can be defined as an excessive or very heavy menstrual bleeding, which usually occurs at irregular intervals. It is commonly associated with painful periods or severe PMS symptoms such as bloating, irritability, pain, etc. It can lead to significant iron-deficiency anemia.

It can be treated by means of endometrial ablation (EA), commonly known as uterine ablation. EA involves the destruction (ablation) of the uterine lining, which results are highly satisfactory in most cases. The majority of patients stop having menses or, if they continue, they are reduced to normal or lighter levels.
