Currently being considered for coblation nucleoplasty trial (cervical). Contained herniation. I'm in early 20's. Possible long term complications?

Anovualtion: 'false pregnancy' has no exact or specific definition, so i can't give an exact answer. Simply being late on a period (if not pregnant) is nearly always because of not ovulating. If your periods are mostly regular you could wait for the next one, or can be evaluated by a gynecologist anytime. ...Read more
No pregnancies: The sole function of the uterus is to house a pregnancy which would no longer be possible. As long as the surgery goes smoothly with no complications, no negative health consequences will occur.
