If you have Post Endometrial Ablation Syndrome: Another Possible Explanation

After an endometrial ablation or after a NovaSure operation lucky ones are done with all their heavy menstrual bleeding, in fact most don't bleed a drop. But some women who find themselves still having periods or a return of periods after having had endometrial ablations may be suffering from what is called Endometrial Hyperplasia, which is an overgrowth of the lining of the uterus. Endometrial hyperplasia is a condition that is potentially pre-cancerous and should be treated. Often it can be treated with progesterone. After your gyno gives you the progesterone you need to give your uterus a bit of time to respond to the treatments before rechecking with biopsies, ultrasounds, D and Cs or a hysteroscope look into the uterus. Other gynos may then have you wait for the tests until you have been off the progesterone treatment for a bit. Because if you biopsy too soon after stopping the progesterone you may just be checking the short term effect of progesterone, you have to give it a month or two for the true effect of the lining to be unmasked.
