A Treatment for Heavy Periods
This procedure is intended to ease the symptoms of heavy periods and most women will subsequently notice a significant reduction in flow. Some women may even find that their periods stop altogether. Endometrial ablation involves removing the endometrium (the lining of the womb) and there are a number of methods used to achieve this. Thermal balloon ablation removes the lining of the womb using a water filled baloon which heat energy is passed through. These procedures can be carried out under local or general anaesthetic depending on the individual needs and health of the patient.
