Am considering having cryoablation done for my excruciatingly painful and bloody periods. I'm 48 and had a tubal ligation 7 years ago. Anyone have negative side effects from one?

Thanks for the info. What kinds of problems did you have from the hormonal deficiencies?

I had the Novasure procedure in 2004, and it was the BEST thing I have ever done for myself! No negative side effects from it! (I had a tubal ligation in 2000) I have recently discovered that the TL caused hormone deficiencies, which typically surface 6-8 years post tubal. Please take my suggestion top INSIST on hormone testing for any symptoms that doctors take lightly. One thing leads to another, and I never knew hormone deficiencies could cause such problems!
Good luck!
