A 45 years old Chinese housewife presented with menorrhagia and dysmenorrhoea due to adenomyosis failed to respond to various medical treatments. She was treated with balloon thermoablation. The total menstrual blood loss (MBL) decreased from 96.94 ml before to 37.57 ml, six months after thermoablation. The pictorial blood loss chart (PBLC) showed similar decrease in blood loss. Dysmenorrhoea was also cured. At three year follow up, there was no recurrence. This is the first report which shows thermoablation decreases MBL objectively and can be tried to treat adenomyosis.
