Can You Get Pregnant After Ablation
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Can you get pregnant after uterine ablation. Still have a regular period after procedure though much lighter than before.?
Very difficult: That would extremely unlikely. Do you still have any menses whatsoever? The ablation is the real obstacle here. Even without tubes you can conceive with IVF. But the fact that your endometrium has been ablated is a major challenge. You would likely need a surrogate to carry the pregnancy which is very expensive. ...Read more
Unlikely but: Possiblebut possible. Ablations only affect the lining of the uterus. You still ovulate every month regardless of whether you bleed or not. If worried you can always take a home pregnancy test. At 48 you getting close to menopause age, so ovulation can begin to become more irregular, which also makes pregnancy more difficult. ...Read more

I had a tubal ligation and oblasion no menstrations after oblasion can I get pregnant my breast hurt my lower back hurts I feel nausus my bones hurt?
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. ...Read more
I am 36 and I have had a tubal and a uterine ablation done maybe 7 years ago and my obgyn says I still have a chance to become pregant.
I am 43 and had a tubal ligation 9 years ago and an ablation 5 years ago. I started spotting and cramping a little today. Is this normal or is pregna?
GYN exam: Given your tubal ligation and ablation, pregnancy is very doubtful. Given your age, I suggest a GYN exam, female hormone and thyroid testing, PAP smear and if needed a uterine sampling biopsy. Please do not ignore these symptoms. You may also require a transvaginal ultrasound. ...Read more

Pregnancy test?: A pregnancy at age 43 with your tubes tied and after an endometrial ablation would be very unlikely. Have you checked a pregnancy test? That would be the first step. If positive you definitely need to see a physician soon. ...Read more

Not common: If you a talking about ablating ovarian cysts, as is sometimes done for pcos - the ablation itself would cause minimal pain. The laparoscopy done to access the ovaries would cause mild pain that would normally be controlled with oral pain medications. If you mean an endomatrial ablation, there would likely be minimal pain during or after the procedure, as most are done under general anesthesia. ...Read more
If I get a bout of a-fib two months after an ablation does that mean that my procedure is a complete failure?

I'm 43, and am trying to get pregnant... I had an an ablation 7 yrs ago what are my chances, I have a cycle every month?
See provider: Because you have had an ablation there is an increased risk of miscarriage, or even of no implantation, if you do conceive. Not knowing your other health issues, fertility declines after age 35 and certainly after age 40. Please see your provider for advice. We have seen successful pregnancies after ablation but as a general rule they are not advised. ...Read more

Hard to answer: In this short space, it's a difficult question to answer. We don't know ur father - I suggest getting him on HeathTap Prime or talking w/ a doctor to get a good opinion. Generally, ablation is used when afib is symptomatic, causing problems, persistent despite max medical treatment, & recurrent despite cardioversion. Only a doc w/ access to his records cd determine if he meets these criteria. ...Read more
Endometrial ablation: If your uterus is of a normal size, you don't have cancer, and you are not interested in future child-bearing you could be a candidate for an endometrial ablation. You should have your dr. Check for reasons of bleeding before the procedure and I suggest an ultrasound to measure the uterus before ablation therapy. ...Read more
Never: By definition. Women should not undergo endometrial ablation if they want to have children again. It is not recommended. But some women try. It is very difficult. Usually the uterus is permanently damaged. There are some techniques to go back and surgically fix the uterus but most women are never able to carry a pregnancy successfully after an ablation. ...Read more
It depends: If it is truly a hemangioma, and not some other vascular anomaly, then usually complete removal can be done. Sometimes it cannot be removed completely when major organs are involved, but those are usually some other form of vascular anomaly such as a venous malformation, etc. ...Read more

Looking to get an ablation done for my PVCs. However I am concerned that my RHR could be a problem for anesthesia. My average RHR is 48 to 60. Issue?
Not a problem:
The anesthesia required is a sedative one and even if general was required a HR in that range would not be a concern. If you are very active (ie run etc) let the anesthesiologist know that. We have athletes all the time with RHR of 40.
Also if needed we have medications to increase the rate should it be needed. Best of luck ...Read more
Yes.: Endometrial ablations even when done in the or with a general anesthesia, can hurt. Best to be prepared and even with a good cervical block (local injection), have Codeine or vicodin or percocets available for when your anesthesia wears off. On the flip side, I've had patients need almost nothing. Good luck. ...Read more
