Pregnancy after having endometrial ablation and tubal ligation reversal. Whats the odds?

SHELLIE - posted on 10/13/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




I had my tubes tied in 2005 by the Filshie Clip method and started having horrible periods. The periods continued to get much worse, intolerable. I had an endometrial ablation in 2011 to help with the issues. I was told at the time of surgery that I would not be able to conceive if I had the ablation. I chose to move forward since I was and had been single for about 5 years at the time. Well low and behold I met my guy :) I have been doing research and from what I have been able to read if I still have any period I still have some uterine lining that may support a pregnancy. My periods have lightened drastically but I do still have them regularly. I have been in contact with the tubal reversal place in NC and they sound like I am a good canidate. I know it's risky but I am going to see what happens. I know there have been plenty healthy pregnancies post ablation. I go see my doctor who did the ablation to see what my uterus looks like next month. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I would be very wary after the ablation. It can be very dangerous to fall pregnant after having it done. Yes you may have a small amount uterine lining but it may not be all over your uterus and if the egg lands where you don't have any then it's the worst situation.
