I am a 51 year old woman who had an endometrial ablation

Customer Question

I am a 51 year old woman who had an endometrial ablation about 3 years ago that did not significantly reduce excessive bleeding. In recent months my period has become increasingly irregular and frequent, often occurring twice monthly contributing to severe anemia (hemoglobin regularly about 9). This is complicated by the fact I also have aplastic anemia, so my rbc production is not no
rmal due to bone marrow deficiency.
Gynecologist has suggested a different type of endometrial ablation as an option. I have a history of adverse reaction to both methergine maleate, and (following ablation) Lysteda, so chemically inducing menopause does not seem a viable option. Due to aplastic anemia, I'm not a desirable surgical candidate for hysterectomy either. What would be best options?
