Endometrial ablation a month ago.  Bleeding after non penetration stimulation, why?

Bleed after ablation: An endometrial ablation is done to reduce your menses to a normal flow. About 40% of women have no menses after the procedure, depending on the type of ablation. That being said, it is typical to spot, stain or discharge for up to 6 weeks. Finally you should wait to see how you are doing at 3 months, before considering the procedure a failure.

Can uterine fibroids and/or adenomyosis reoccur after having a hysterectomy?

No, not really: Adenomyosis is when the lining cells of the uterus are located just deep to the lining (but still within the uterus). It can be thought of as endometriosis of the uterus. Hysterectomy would remove this. Almost all fibroids are in the uterus also and would be removed with hysterectomy, although there are fibroids on rare occasions outside the uterus which could be missed/reoccur but very rare. ...Read more

Is conception after endometrial ablation & tubal ligation possible & safe if still having normal periods?

Possible....: But not likely. The tubal ligation blocks your tubes so hopefully the egg and sperm don't meet. The ablation attempts to destroy the lining of the uterus so your periods are lighter. We don't recommend pregnancy after an ablation because the risk of miscarriage is so high. ...Read more
