Man did that hurt. They should have given me a pain killer or numbed me or something, cause it was like 4 minutes of excrutiating pain. Getting your teeth pulled is a quick procedure too but they thouroughly numb you first WTH.

Thankfully it is not as painful now but I felt really crampy yesterday like a super bad period, and today I feel the same except I wasn't told it would hurt so bad so here I am on my feet at a kids party for my 4 year olds friend.

I feel like I was soooo ill informed about this procedure. It was done in the office but it is no joke.

Ouch!! I would be pretty mad to if they did not warn me about the side effects of the procedure.

I hope you feel better soon and hope you get great results.

I've had one. It definitely reminded me of the worst period cramps for sure. My doc gave me enough warning of how it would feel but it was a bit more cramps than painful. Ibuprofen and heating pad helped ease the pain. Why did you have one?

My periods were lasting about 2 weeks or more, and they were very painful so before I can get an endometrial ablation (basically no more periods w/o having a hysterectomy) I have to be checked to make sure there isn't any major concerns for my irregular periods.

My cycles were lasting about 3 weeks, were super heavy and very irregular. So my doc, before I chose to have a hysterectomy, wanted to do biopsy to make sure nothing was getting missed. I wanted a permanent fix and the ablation is not permanent, your cycle can return in 2-5 years. Thank goodness she did the biopsy because she found pre-cancerous cells in my uterus and I had a 30% chance of gettig uterine cancer. So the hysterectomy was the right choice. :)

Jeeze, that's awful. :( I hope that all my stuff is good. I really don't want to have a hysterectomy though. I would like to keep my lady parts we have been through so much together. I am 34. How old were you? because I was told his would be permanent. Maybe it is because at my age my stuff down there starting to die any way, lol.

I wouldn't wish that experience on anyone. I was in the colposcopy clinic for 2 years and had one every 3-6 m

I was 35 and my ovaries are still intact so I didn't go through menopause. That will happen naturally now. At the time of my procedure ablation was reportedly not a permanent procedure though things may have changed in the last 2 years. I wanted true permanency from my issues and then when I got the results from the biopsy a hysterectomy was the only option. Life has been amazing ever since!
