I had an ablation done Aug 30 of last year and in some ways am happy and other ways not. This past winter i had pretty bad depression. My MD said it had nothing to do with the ablation but my naturopath said most definately it will. He said it messes with your central nervous system.
Also I have never had cramping during my cycle like I do now. The cramping seems to go down my legs. My PMS lasts longer as well. It feels like PMS 24/7!!
But the light periods that i get are amazing
I only have to wear a liner for 1day. The rest of the time it's there when I wipe and thats it. My bleeding was incredibly heavy every month so this feels sooo much better than before.
Would I do it again? I think I would try to fix the heavy bleeding naturopathically instead. There was a reason why I had such heavy bleeding, I think I should have gotten to the bottom of that before i did what I did. Instead of the bandaid effect...actually get to the root of the problem.
I hope this helps. If you have any questions you can PM me if you would like.
