Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your situation. If you are talking about ENDOMETRIAL ABLATION SURGERY, which involves burning the lining of the uterus to stop bleeding due to any cause, then unfortunately pregnancy is not likely after the procedure. but it can happen. If it does, the risk of miscarriage and other problems are greatly increased.

So basically getting pregnant after ablation procedures of this sort is very unlikely however IF it does happen then the risk of losing the pregnancy or developing complications during the pregnancy are MARKEDLY higher than a normal pregnancy, so that is why it is NOT advisable to try and get pregnant after this procedure.

If you did NOT have this procedure and instead had another one then let me know and i will be happy to answer questions regarding that as well.

Do you have any more questions?
