As we mentioned in previous articles during the last stage of the menstrual cycle normally a layer of endometriosis lining in the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood but instead some of the endometriosis tissues growing somewhere else in the body causing endometriosis. Endometriosis also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. If diagnosis indicate that endometriosis have interfered with the woman conception, she may want to know what conventional treatment can help to correct this problem. In this article, we will discuss what is endometrial ablation?

First your doctor inserts a hysteroscope into the uterus through the cervix to see the area they are treating, then the lining of the uterus is burned and destroyed by using laser or thermal energy produced by electrocautery.
