About the Procedure The procedure can be performed in an office visit or outpatient setting, and generally takes less than 5 minutes. In addition the procedure can be performed under general anesthesia and does not require a hospital stay. Recovery is fast and most women can usually return to their normal activities by the next day. After the procedure, most women experience moderate cramping, which can be managed with over the counter pain relievers. You might also see vaginal bleeding or light spotting, changing to a pinkish watery discharge that may last for several weeks. The discharge is a normal part of the healing process. The first-operative check-up usually occurs within two weeks after the procedure, and sexual activity can resume after the check up visit. Your first few weeks after the procedure may continue to be heavy, with improvement thereafter. Read more:https://www.thewomenschoice.com/endometrial-ablation/
Banner Endometrial PolypThe polyps are of two types, pedunculated and sessile. While the former have a pedicle or stalk that fixes them to the uterine wall, the latter are flat based. Pedunculated polyps tend to occur more often than the sessile polyps. The peduculated endometrial polyps often jut out through the cervix and into the vagina due to their longer shape. The color of the polyps is red or brown like the endometrium, but they may also appear dark red especially if large. Some women may have a single endometrial polyp, while others may have multiple polyps in the uterus. Nearly 10% of women are estimated to have endometrial polyps in the uterus. Additionally, polyps are the primary cause of irregular vaginal bleeding in 25% of the women experiencing this symptom. Though most uterine polyps are benign or non-cancerous in nature, around 0.5% are cancerous. Read more: https://www.thewomenschoice.com/endometrial-polyp-professional-gynecological-services/
