Menorrhagia is a frequent complaint in women of reproductive age and medical treatment of this disorder or curettage rarely give sufficient results. Traditionally hysterectomy was the ultimate solution in these cases. However, in the last decades alternative methods have been developed and employed providing sufficient therapeutic efficacy, using endometrial resection or ablation. The thermal balloon endometrial ablation with its excellent outcome and low complication rate offers a considerably good alternative in the treatment of menorrhagia. However, endometrial ablation is not a contraceptive method, thus the possibility of pregnancy remains. The patient must be informed on this subject and an appropriate contraceptive method should be chosen and practiced.
