Just curious if any of you have had this done, or know of someone who has.I am being encouraged that this is something I should consider. I'd just like to hear some other thoughts on what people who have had this think about it.I understand she feels it would help greatly with my anemia.

Hello, I am actually schedule for this on the 15th as I have 5 fibroids with some in the lining of my uterus. Having a monthly period has been extremely painful and has also caused IBS to flair each month due to the perscription medication that I have to take to help control the bleeding and pain. I opted for an ablation as I could not stomach birth control pills and did not want to have a hysterectomy performed as I am only 42. For me this was the next step as I living the way I was definitely impacted my life a week each month and I did not know how bad I would bleed, so I had to really plan my work around my life. I hope you find your answer as I really waited until I could not handle it anymore and hope this will be my least until I hit menopause!
Good Morning, Diane here! Just wanted to give you an update on my was a piece of cake!I had 5 fybroid and one was on my uterine wall so that had to take a biopsy which the cramping and pain from that was much more painful than actually going through the procedure on the 15th. I went in for prep at 6:45 and had the procedure done at 7:15 and was back in recovery and awake by 8:00a.m. and home by 9:30a.m.Took a nap all day Saturday just to be safe, but felt great Saturday afternoon and from that foward.......Would strongly recommend and hope that from this day forward life during this time of month is not as yucky! Keep me posted on if you decide to move forward and any other information I can provide.
