Hi Anonymous

Thanks for your question and welcome!

Are you asking for yourself or a friend or family member? It may depend on your (or their) overall health or medical history but the procedure itself is pretty simple.

This kind of surgery, in the whole scheme of things, can be considered minor. It is outpatient, takes only a few minutes (to freeze the uterine lining) and is painless. Risks are minimal but your doctor will discuss them with you. You can usually go back to work the next day.

If you have further questions, let us know.

I hope this helps you!
