Can I still get pregnant after uterine cauterization?

Uterine cauterization does not help as birth control so yes you can still get pregnant, although it is not recommended. Since you have not had a period in 2 years you can not know if it is from menopause or from the ablation without getting blood work. You can get blood to check if you are menopausal.

Hope that helps and best wishes.
