For me, month five post ablation was my second lightest cycle since the ablation. It still lasted too long though--8 and a half days long and I am just sick of it dragging on and on! I do not understand why when it is SO LIGHT, it still extends beyond the "normal" amount of cycle days. I am delighted with the amount of flow, but mad mad mad with the length. Will I ever have a 5 day cycle again?! This question is one of the many I ponder when it comes to this ablation.
