Hi Anon,

Thanks for your question! it's a very good one and one that is often asked here on Empowher.

The need to go to the bathroom for the first day or two is quite common but after that first day or two, it's likely that what you are experiencing is not urination, but a watery discharge that is also seen very often after this procedure. In fact, it's one of the most common side effects of an ablation and can last several weeks so be prepared to have sanitary pads for a while!
Here is a list of the most common side effects:
You may:

■Feel cramping, similar to menstrual cramps, for 1-2 days
■Have a heavy discharge for 2-3 days
■Have a watery, bloody discharge for a few weeks
■Need to go to the bathroom a lot for the first day and have some nausea

For more information please read our Ablation page where you can read all about the procedure and what to expect, as well as short videos, articles and stories from other women who have gone through the same thing.

If things are not better in about four weeks, talk to your doctor but take comfort in knowing that it's a normal side effect.

However, if you have any more questions or comments, I'd be delighted to help you further.

I wish you a speedy recovery!
