Endometrial ablation is a procedure that is used to control or lessen heavy bleeding. It is usually performed after a treatment plan with medication to control bleeding has failed. During endometrial ablation, the lining of the uterus is destroyed in order to stop the bleeding. There are several ways the procedure can be performed. Your provider will discuss options and work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your life and health.
