Norma, I had the cryoablation done in December 09 and was very crampy for about 2 weeks afterwards. Luckily I was off from work and spent several days in bed. I did wind up getting my period and did not get a lot of relief from the procedure, but I know people who have. I just responded because I was in the dark and did not expect the cramping. It gets better though my periods have not :( Good luck with your journey.
