Hope ... Abalation is a procedure during which they burn (either with a laser or heat) the lining of your uterus so that it comes out as it does during your period but the heat makes it so that it doesn't build back up the way it had been. Mine is building too thick for some reason. It is not an option for a woman who plans to have children in the future but I do not. The side effects after the procedure are heavy discharge, cramping, etc and I will be very doped up even though it is done in-office. The benefits are lighter (possibly no more) periods and less cramping during those periods.
I hope I explained that correctly. At least that is my understanding of the process.
