Question: HerOption - Uterin Cryo-Alblation

 guitargal2 - Mon Mar 23, 2009 12:49 pm

Hello - I'm a healthy 44 yr old - last Thursday - I underwent the HerOption to eliminate the long uncomforable periods I was having. Everything has been fine w/mimimul no discomfort - but watery discharge.

Saturday was a busy day - and that evening I started to bleed - and yesterday and today it has been pretty heavy - requiring a pad change every hour or so. Mostly blood w/few clumps.

My uterus is tilted backward - also - I did have some cyst on my ovaries.

Is this normal - what is the deal? I'm a little worried.

User avatar Hello,
It can take a little while for the full effects of the ablation to be appreciated. Healing is most likely happening and chances are this will resolve on its own. If not, you should talk to your doctor because bleeding should not be excessive in this case.

Best wishes.
