Evaluation: The only thing i would be concerned about is whether there is scar tissue inside the uterus from the procedure. If your periods are getting lighter then it may be a sign of scarring. That should be evaluated and taken care of so that you can still get pregnant in the future. If that is not going on it is eqaually good to know.
