Pregnancy (Definition)

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.

Yes: Ablation is not birth control and the fact that you are having periods probably means you are ovulating. Ablation is only used to control bleeding. Pregnancy after ablation is very dangerous and a very reliable form of contraception needs to be used. ...Read more

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. 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

Can you get pregnant after 2 ablations & no period for 2 years?

Can you get pregnant after 2 ablations & no period for 2 years?

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?

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 .

Depends: Tubal Iigations are very good at preventing pregnancy. There are some variations in failure rates depending on the type of tubal. But failure rates are less than 1%. By itself an uterine ablation does not mean you can't get pregnant but can make it more difficult. ...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

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

Does it hurt to get an ovarian ablation done?

Does it hurt to get  an ovarian ablation done?

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

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

Should my father get an ablation for his afib?

Should my father get an ablation for his afib?

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
