Surrogacy: Its where you find someone that will carry a baby for you.Your hubby's sperm is added to eggs harvested from you and they use IVF to plant the result in a surrogate. This is quite expensive and not covered by insurance, but it is a way for you to have a kid. Otherwise you are done. ...Read more

PCOS, Endometriosis, Heavy Cycles, 33yo, tubal ligation 3 yrs ago. Would an endometrial ablation lessen my symptoms/cancer risks?

PCOS, Endometriosis, Heavy Cycles, 33yo, tubal ligation 3 yrs ago. Would an endometrial ablation lessen my symptoms/cancer risks?

Maybe not: Endometrial cancer can be obscured by endometrial ablations if it is not ruled out prior to the procedure by biopsy. Many women continue to have bleeding post endometrial ablation procedures, and the most likely conclusive treatment is hysterectomy if you no longer desire children. ...Read more

Is conception after endometrial ablation & tubal ligation possible & safe if still having normal periods?

Is conception after endometrial ablation & tubal ligation possible & safe if still having normal periods?

Possible....: But not likely. The tubal ligation blocks your tubes so hopefully the egg and sperm don't meet. The ablation attempts to destroy the lining of the uterus so your periods are lighter. We don't recommend pregnancy after an ablation because the risk of miscarriage is so high. ...Read more

I had an ablation and tubal ligation 5 years ago. Im considering a tubal reversal.What are my risks and success rate of having a healthy baby?

I had an ablation and tubal ligation 5 years ago. Im considering a tubal reversal.What are my risks and success rate of having a healthy baby?

Probably: In my experience, 80-90% of tubal ligations can be reversed and generally with good results. I respectfully agree with the last answer and most skilled reproductive surgeons have excellent results with ectopic rates of 5% or less and pregnancy rates in the 60-70+% range depending on age. Surgery can be done as an outpatient with an overnight stay. Hope this helps. ...Read more

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
