I have had endometrial ablation and it has worked ok, some times my periods are heavy and sometimes they are just spotting for about a week. I still get alot of cramping and aching though. Was meant to have a hysterectomy earlier this year but backed out.
Apparently for some it goes back to normal heavy periods eventually.

I have had an ablation as well. I had mine done Dec 14 and never looked back. No bleeding after no bleeding since.

How did you both organise it?

I have a mirena. Initially I had quite heavy spotting, continuously for like 4 months. I was on the verge of having it removed but it's now settled down
To pretty much nothing. I occasionally have some light spotting or blood when I wipe and that's it. I was getting quite painful periods after I had my baby. My perineum ached so badly I felt like I'd been kicked with a large boot. It's so much better now!

How to stop periods
I was on the pill and skipped the sugar pills when I didn't want my period and it was great but I had to come off it last year before a surgery and haven't gone back on it and my periods were once again long and heavy (7 days of heavy heavy bleeding and 2 days of light bleeding followed by 2 days of spotting) and on a whim decided I would try vitex and raspberry leaf as I had heard it can help with pms symptoms and toning the uterus and since then I have 3-4 days light bleeding and only a day spotting and it's done.
Edited to add that it was on a complete whim I started on these because normally I wouldn't bother as I see medical matters should be practiced by medical Drs. But if you do decide to try a herbal method please check with your gp before started as some can interact with some meds.

How to stop periods
I had a history of very heavy bleeding and no chance of having any more kids due to ectopic gone horribly wrong.
I had been on meds to slow/ stop the bleeding and I was bleeding every couple of weeks and for a week after BD with the hubby.
I am too young for a hysto so doc suggested this. It doesn't always have a success rate like mine and it may grow back but he is optimistic it won't be till menopause.
