Older Women, HEAVIER Periods? Endometrial Ablation?
Hello Ladies,

I'll be 45 next month (6/30), and got my first period in June of 1975. Needless to say, I am QUITE used to my periods and cycles. At least, I WAS! Over the past few months, my periods have become increasingly heavy, longer-lasting, more clot-filled, darker, and almost -- strike that -- COMPLETELY unpredictable! I have already had TWO periods in the past month (April/May -- less than one full week between periods), and NEITHER occurred during my "inert" BC pills! The last two, especially, have been AWFUL, foul-smelling, disgusting, and impossible to manage. I've been fighting nausea with them for a while now, and this past one -- I actually threw up! It's become THAT sickening! I use a Diva Cup PLUS a maxi pad and stay IN BED, and I STILL leak after three hours (at my worst, which lasts forever). I've ruined so many of my clothes and underwear; it depresses me to even think about it.

I have an appointment with my gyno on May 29th (first opening), and have already "diagnosed" myself as needing an endometrial ablation. I've read about NOVASURE, which seems to be the E.A. of choice. My gyno performs those as well, thank heavens! But I am still nervous. It is not without risks. Anyone have any experience with endometrial ablation? Symptoms sounds familiar to anyone? Please share?!
