Can you get pregnant after having a ablation and no tubes?

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.

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.

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 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
