Uterine Ablation cause menopause?

by Lisa
(Canada )

I had a uterine ablation 2 yrs ago because I would bleed very heavy for 20 days. I had to have a series of 4 iron infusions because of it.

Since the ablation I have gained 50 lbs. Not sleeping. Can't seem to regulate my thyroid. I have a belly, I never had one before, extreme crippling fatigue. Might the ablation have caused me to go into menopause? I have wondered because of the extreme heat used to cauterize my uterus if it may have damaged my ovaries? The heat post OP felt like fire..

Hi Lisa

I had the ablation many years ago and it didn't cause any weight gain or put me in Menopause but people do react differently to things. That is a lot of weight gain and I suspect that your thyroid has a lot to do with it. A vitamin D3 deficiency can also affect the thyroid. Levels should be between 70-100ng/nL. Nothing less than 5,000iu's per day is needed. It's important to take co-factors when taking D3, magnesium and vitamin K2 are the important ones to take. I don't think that the cauterization would have caused damage to your ovaries but if you are concerned, please see your doctor.

Progesterone does help to regulate things, you might like to try using a good progesterone cream such as Natpro. Between 100-200mg is needed. Please read these pages if you do decide to try progesterone: How to use Progesterone Cream and Estrogen Dominance.

Please look into Lugol's iodine for your thyroid as well as Tyrosine and selenium. There is also the tablet form which is called Iodoral. I personally prefer the Lugol's liquid. This is a powerful way to help your thyroid - your fatigue, weight gain etc. Read Dr. David Brownstein's books about the importance of this mineral!
