Hysteroscopic Endometrial Ablation

This webpage will give you information about an endometrial ablation. If you have any questions, you should ask your GP or other relevant health professional.

 

What does the Operation Involve?

An endometrial ablation is usually performed under a general anaesthetic. The operation usually takes about half an hour.

Your gynaecologist will pass a hysteroscope (telescope with operating instruments) through your vagina and cervix into the cavity of your womb and pass fluid through the telescope to swell the womb (see figure 1).

They will use electricity or laser energy to remove the lining of your womb and any polyps or small fibroids they find.
