Does endometrial ablation mean no more periods?

Theoretically, yes. If the ablation is done properly and the endometrial lining is removed completely, it does not exist anymore and will not shed monthly. However, if a part of the endometrium remains still in the uterine cavity, it is possible for the woman to still have periods, but much lighter or in the form of a mild spotting.
