What happens if the procedure is not successful?

Endometrial ablation will not be successful in about 10% of cases.

Treatment options are as per the “Ladder of AUB -E” described above.

It is possible to have a repeat endometrial ablation if the first has not been successful, with the same chance of success as noted above.  It is not possible to have a second NovaSure endometrial ablation and a repeat procedure has to be a rollerball or resection type of procedure.

Hysterectomy following an endometrial ablation may be for failure of the treatment, or the development of a new problem such as a fibroid or pain.
