I just wanted to comment about the ablation. I had mine done in '07 and I was one of the lucky ones. My periods stopped instantly and I haven't had one since. I had it done for the very same reason, the help with the monthly flaring from my Uc. I was not a candidate for anything that contained hormones because I get severe debilitating migraines from any hormone flunctuations. Yes even my periods would give me horrendous headaches. Since I had the ablation, I no longer get bad headaches. I still get them but not as bad and truthfully I think the ones I get now are from the Uc meds. I know that the literature states that the ablation doesn't mess with the hormones and such but for me, it definately helped. I no longer have hormone flunctuations. I no longer have Uc related flares either. I think that is one reason why I was finally able to achieve remission.
