Hello ladies. I was wondering if anyone here has had either of those procedures? I'm planning to do both and will see my doctor next week to talk about my options, but I'd like to hear some first hand experiences about what I can expect.
I'm 100% certain I'm done having kids. 2 boys, 2 girls, I'm done. I was planning to just have Essure, but now my periods are being wacky and TBH after having dealt with periods for over 2 decades, I'd like to be done with that too. Especially since they are getting more painful and too heavy, and I don't want to mess with my hormones.
What do you think? Anybody know what I can expect from those things besides the generic stuff on medical websites?

Hi, Just lurking and found your post. I had both procedures done last March and completely happy with the results. I also was done with having children and had heavy periods, etc..Surgery was of course out-patient and was a breeze. No problems at all. I have not had one period since last March and Im loving it. Totally recommend it if you are seriously done having kids. Good Luck and keep me posted.

There is probably a medical reason for the heavy bleeding - could be hormonal, could be pathological. The ablation will treat the bleeding, but not heal whatever the underlying condition. Many women do still experience bleeding problems after an ablation (because of an untreated underlying cause) and later require hysterectomy to deal with that.
