I apologize for taking so long to write more about my ablation experience, but to be quite honest it's because I haven't had anything to write about, really. To quote all the Lego people from the Lego movie, "Everything is awesome!"
OK, there were a few very minor things that came up over the past months since having my ablation, but really nothing I was worried about. For one, I do have periods sometimes. Not at ALL like the ones I was experiencing before the procedure, but there are some months when I have minor spotting or even just a slight thin clear discharge. Glad I didn't throw out all those sanitary liners.
Other months, I get very minor indicators that my cycle is ending: very slight cramps, one or two small pimples on my face, and irritability (although my family may call it something else). These symptoms were the same as I had before the procedure. The only difference now is that they aren't accompanied by the massive bleeding I was experiencing.
I have experienced a couple yeast infections. I know... gross. I even gagged a bit when I typed it. But to be fair, I don't know if they had anything to do at all with the ablation. In fact, I have my yearly appointment with my OBGYN next month and plan to ask him about it. I will let you know what he says.
All in all, I am VERY pleased with having had the ablation procedure. Similar to childbirth, I honestly do not remember any pain or discomfort I was having before or during the procedure. It's more like thinking about a movie I watched a long time ago. During the first few days following the proceudre, I was worried that I would have regrets. But I don't. I feel good.
Oh, and I decided not to share my story on the Nova-Sure website. I had a wonderful experience with their product and will continue to give my honest review of it here on my blog. I just didn't want anyone to think I was being paid or being swayed by them in any way to post my experience. I feel it's more nature here in my own space.
Please as always feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about ablation or if you just want to chat about it. I would love to help you. Thanks for following along!
