Endometrial ablation (NovaSure), hysterectomy or tubal ligation, what's better?

By Sara Salgado.
Last Update: 12/05/2016

Endometrial ablation means having your endometrial lining removed, while hysterectomy means having your uterus removed, so it should be clear that they are not a birth control methods. It is indicated in cases of women with heavy menstrual bleeding. If the purpose of considering these procedures is just being unable to conceive, we recommend you to go for tubal ligation, as it could be reversed in case you wanted to have a baby in the future.
