Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding - now what?

Hello everyone,

I am looking for any support advice, will try to explain but keep it brief - I am 38 years old, living in UK. I have been experiencing heavy uterine bleeding and pelvic pain in the past year - no issues previously. No children and have never been pregnant.
Treatment has been tranexamic acid to reduce bleeding, went for transvaginal ultrasound and then a hysteroscopy for a suspected polyp. Had to go back in January for hysteroscopy under GA, no polyp was found, but the heavy bleeding continued and I was off work for 4 months suffering pain and bleeding.
GP started me on norithisterone tablets which have stopped the bleeding and referred me back to Gynae clinic. AM not on waiting list for Endometrial Ablation. Diagnosis sounds rather vague - Dysfuctional Uterine Bleeding. Have returned to work but am struggling - womb pain still an issue.
Has anyone else experienced similar? Will the Ablation help me and why is my womb still hurting when I am not heavily bleeding?

Many thanks
