Ladies, understanding our bodies is a personal experience for each of us. While having a healthy body without major female issues is what all of us strive for, sometimes that's easier said than done in today's fast-paced, go-go-go world, especially when there's hardly enough time to even check for symptoms that might be implicating such issues.

At Capital Women's Health, you can rest assured with the trusted hands of Eric Ashkin, M.D.,  Dr. Leslie Masiky and Dr. Aliya Poshni. That's because they've specialized in gynecology services for years, gaining valuable experience in the field and in-person for just about any female issue you can think of.

One of the lesser known services we can provide is known as endometrial ablation, which is a treatment for women experiencing heavy menstrual bleeding. This method is seen as superior to other, more invasive methods such as hysterectomies in gynecologist patients who failed to find relief in conventional medical therapy.

Below is some information that can help you get a stronger grasp of endometrial ablation so you can feel good about the treatment you receive if this issue afflicts you:

Not For Everyone

In order to experience a problem-free endometrial ablation therapy, you must meet a specific set of criteria to ensure you won't run the risk of having any unwanted side effects from the procedure.

What It's Like

Endometrial ablation surgery involves different energy waves that cauterize the lining in a patient's uterus. Through this technique, menstrual bleeding can be rendered nearly or completely gone.

Recovery Period

Fortunately, this outpatient procedure comes with hardly any recovery time. That being said, women who may wish to become pregnant later should resist this procedure as it can impact the lining of the uterus in a way that's not conducive for child-bearing.
