Endometrial ablation under local anaesthesia is a feasible procedure that
can be performed safely in an outpatient clinic, according to a recent study published in BJOG
. Women who received a
combination of either intra- or para-cervical anaesthesia and intrauterine injections reported significantly lower pain scores than those who
received no local anaesthesia or intra- or para-cervical anaesthesia alone. The acceptability of endometrial ablation under local anaesthesia was high.
