Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the problem is due to endometrial ablation, the ablation usually works in controlling the symptoms. You can start being sexually active after about 4-6 weeks of ablation procedure or after your follow-up check done by your treating gynecologist. You should consider following your treating gynecologistâs instructions and proceed with further management. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring with your treating doctor/gynecologist.
