Endometrial Ablation: Transformative Women's Health

In the pursuit of providing comprehensive and innovative healthcare solutions to women, Texas Well Woman, led by the esteemed Dr. Jennifer Bliss in Sunrise Beach, Texas[2] , is proud to introduce a revolutionary procedure known as "Endometrial Ablation." In this blog post, we will explore the details of this procedure, its benefits, and how it can be a life-changing option for women experiencing abnormal bleeding.

What is Endometrial Ablation?

Endometrial ablation[3] is a minimally invasive, in-office procedure designed to address abnormal bleeding in women. The treatment involves destroying the lining of the uterus using high heat, which significantly reduces or even eliminates heavy bleeding. It is particularly suitable for women who experience heavy or prolonged periods, irregular intervals, and have not yet reached menopause. The treatment boasts a high success rate and can be a game-changer for women who have tried other treatments without success.

Who is a Candidate for Endometrial Ablation?

Women who are experiencing abnormal bleeding and hormonal treatment did not work well for them may be excellent candidates for endometrial ablation. Dr. Bliss highlights that this procedure can be a preferable choice for those who wish to avoid long-term medications or major surgeries like a hysterectomy.

It is important to note that endometrial ablation is not recommended for women who wish to conceive in the future. This procedure is suitable only for those who have completed their childbearing journey. An ablation is not a form of birth control. Getting pregnant after an ablation can be risky and potentially dangerous for both the mother and the baby.

The treatment is not suitable for those who have completed the menopause transition. Additionally, structural causes, such as polyps or fibroids, must be ruled out or removed prior to performing the procedure.

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

There are several different types of endometrial ablation that can be done. Dr. Bliss uses a specialized device known as the Mara endometrial ablation system[4] , which employs hot water steam to achieve the desired effect. The procedure itself takes only two minutes, during which patients may experience minor cramps. Nitrous oxide is administered to ensure the patient's comfort during the procedure. The overall process, from start to finish, usually lasts around 30 minutes.

After the ablation, patients can return home on the same day. While some may experience cramping for a few hours, the discomfort is generally manageable with over the counter medication. Most women can resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure. The best part about the procedure is that a woman’s normal hormone cycle will remain unaffected.


Endometrial ablation is a groundbreaking option for women dealing with abnormal bleeding, offering a minimally invasive and highly effective solution without the need for long-term medications or major surgery.
