Uterine Ablation

Well after going back and forth with what to do with my heavy Monthly flo. Having a uterine biopsy and u/s. it is the week of the procedure. I was planning on doing the IUD not for birth control purposes but to deminish my monthly flo. The other choice is uterine ablation. This is where they cauterize the lining of your uterus. I wasn't sure i wanted to do that, it just scared me, so i thought IUD would be good and then i can decide about the ablation in 5 years. then I saw an episode of The Doctors. It had a lady on there that got the Novasure. I called my mother and asked her what she thought. she said go for it. So hopefully i am able to change my mind about the IUD to Novasure. I left a message with my OB but she hasn't got back to me yet. i hope she has gotten the message. Just let me know she got it and it is ok. But now that I am so close I am getting so scared. i will be put under for the procedure. I am having a hystroscope too, they think i have polyps. the last time i was put under was when i had my wisdom teeth removed when i was about 18-19 years old. According to the lady on The Doctors she was up and out to dinner with her friends that nite. and her bleeding is just mild spotting now. that would be AWESOME even normal bleeding would be great. but having to wear overnight pads during the day and changing those ever hour or so is insane. even though it only last that heavy for 2 days, it is debilitating not being able to move, change your cloths 3 times a day cuz you bled through, worry about sitting on a chair so you put a towel down.

so that is where I am at. i will let you know how it goes after the procedure
