Rarely: Pregnancy rates after tubal ligation are ~1%. Endometrial ablations destroy much of the inner uterine lining that a fertilized egg implants in. This should further reduce your chances. Nevertheless you can do a pregnancy test to exclude this remote possibility. Menstrual symptoms (pms) from hormones will persist after ablation because your ovaries continue to cycle producing female hormones.
