How Long Can I Recover from Endometrial Ablation?

Q:
How long can I recover from endometrial ablation?

A:
It shouldn’t take you long to recover from an ablation. Mostly the patients come back to their normal routine within a week.

However, for the first 24 hours, you are likely to have nausea and an urge to pee. And for a few days, you may have some symptoms of cramping and bleeding. Also, a watery or bloody discharge may appear for up to 3 weeks.

After the procedure, you are advised not to have sex, use tampons, or douche for a few days. You should avoid some activities as well, such as lifting heavy things right away.

But if you have any of these signs, call your doctor right away:

  • Strong-smelling discharge from your vagina
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Intense cramping or stomach pain
  • Heavy bleeding or bleeding lasting more than 2 days
  • Trouble peeing

The results of endometrial ablation don’t always last. If so, you may need a different treatment if the symptoms get back again.

Turn to your doctor and make a best plan for you condition.
