Hi...I'm wondering if you have endometrial hyperplasia. Cryoablation does not eliminate the potential for this condition. I would see what happens next month. If you have heavy bleeding again, I would make an appt. with your gyn dr. & ask if you could have endometrial hyperplasia. It's a benign condition in which the uterine lining grows too much......I'd like to send you a website to read on endometrial hyperplasia. It could also be that you might have some small endometrial fibroids, in which case the cryoablation won't take care of for very long...Hope this helps. If you ever need to have a uterine ablation again in the future, opt for either the Thermachoice Balloon Ablation (by Gynecare) or the Hydrothermal Ablation (by Boston Scientific). They are the 2 top choices.... Kim, RN, BSN, gyn surgical nurse.

In March I had a cryoablation to stop heavy belleding. At 51, my doctor felt this was best alternative.I had not had a period since, that is until the other day. As I was totally unprepared for this, I had to leave work to go home to change. The bleedingseemed excessive. I called my doctor but she was away and spoke with one of the nurses at the office, She did not think this unusal, although she did have me call her back about 2 hours later to report on how much I was bleeding and advised if it got heavy again to call. At this point, it was minimal and still is a day later. Have you heard of this happening, nothing for 5 months and then a period? I guess I expected this to happen sooner than after 5 months.
