I have menorrhagia. I get 5-6 iron infusion/yr.  Lysteda vs Endometrial Ablation (I don’t care for pregnancy). what are pros/cons for each?

If u are getting

Menorrhagia
iron infusions, u need to have a Da Vinci robot hysterectomy and then u will not bleed at all, I do ablations in office and if i could garantee u it would get rid of all of your bleeding that would be the way to go but it doesn't always work and I use Lysteda , but in your case u need it out and the Robot is the least invasive way and make sure the doc does many robots not just a few

I had BTL c endometrial ablation 12/10 . Started bleeding mod amt not R/T to sex. Pregnancy test=Negative. Abn cerv bx 04/12 lgsil. What is impression?

Depends

Weak_uterus
Sometimes bleeding will return years after endometrial ablation. An ultrasound can shed some light on the bleeding and a colposcopy with endometrial and endocervical biopsies will rule out LGSIL or higher grade lesion as a cause.

What are my chances of getting pregnant since I had an endometrial ablation surgery plus my tubes were not tied?

Endometrial ablation

Palm
If you are not having any bleeding at all, then the ablation made the environment of the uterus hostile to pregnancy and your chances of pregnancy are less than 3%. If on the other hand you continue to bleed monthly, you can get pregnant at a normal rate for your age at about 25% each month.

I am 52 years old. I had an endometrial ablation over 10 years ago and have not had a period since then. Can I still get pregnant?

Quite likely not

Pregnant
To know for sure you should have some blood tests done. Most important would be an FSH level (Follicle stimulating hormone). If it is over 50, then you won't get pregnant.

You should be ok

Endometrial ablation does not reliably prevent pregnancy. A tubal ligation is better than 99% effective.

A woman who has an endometrial ablation and has no periods or blood flow. If she got pregnant, what percent likelihood could she carry?

Very unlikely

Absent_periods
Very unlikely to conceive or to carry a pregnancy to term after endometrial ablation. If a pregnancy is achieved after endometrial ablation there is a very high risk of a miscarriage A pregnancy can be achieved with the use of a gestational carrier

I have heard many woman get pregnant after a endometrial ablation. So will I get pregnant if not on birth control. My tubes were not tied.?

Need birth control

Maternal_medications
Contraception is REQUIRED after an endometrial ablation. I will not do an ablation unless the patient or her psrtner has permanent birth control. Please see your doctor and discuss this important issue. Use condoms until you can be seen. Ablations are great procedures but do not prevent pregnancy. A pregnancy after an ablation is dangerous and has very poor outcomes.

Dr. Jane Van Dis answered:

Is it possible to get pregnant after a tubal ligation and endometrial ablation? Ive been having nausea, sore breasts and fatigue alot lately.

Hopefully not

Nausea_
At 33 years of age, your chances of pregnancy after tubal ligation are somewhere around 1 in 300. When you add that you've had an ablation on top of that, your chances decrease even more. I don't have a number for that. While never 0%, very very low that you're pregnant. Take a test, but I bet it's negative. See MD if your nausea and fatigue persist!

Dr. Robert Grieco answered:

I've had this procedure done almost a year ago Endometrial ablation is it possible to get pregnant if I haven't had a period since the procedure?

Very unlikely

Weak_uterus
You can still get pregnant, that is conceive but the uterus will most likely not be able to support it. It is not intended as a form of birth control. The procedure removes only the lining, leaving the uterus intact. The chance of pregnancy occurring after endometrial ablation is small, but if complications are high. You should still use a form of birth control.

I had a endometrial ablation a little over a year ago, have not bleed since, til 2 weeks ago & have been bleeding every since, can i get pregnant now?

It's possible

Weak_uterus
An ablation procedure is not a sterilization procedure and should not be represented as such. Pregnancy after an ablation is less likely but not impossible.
