could i be pregnant at 43 after a tubal ligation and a uterine ablation?

Yes, but not likely

Endometrial_ablation
It would be extremely unlikely for you to get pregnant after having both these procedures. While tubal ligation is not 100% effective it is close. The further out you are from having the tubal ligation, the lower the risk of pregnancy. And uterine ablation - while not a method of contraception - does make the uterus a more hostile environment for pregnancy to occur.

Dr. Michael Swor answered:

What are my chances of getting pregnant if I have had a Uterine Ablation, Tubal ligation but get that reversed? I still have regular monthly periods.

Not recommended

Conception
Unfortunately, the chances are not good. Tubals can be reversed successfully but ablation permanently changes the uterine lining although pregnancy is unlikely, it's not impossible.

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

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. Douglas Lawson answered:

What would be the odds of a woman who had uterus ablation, tubal ligation getting pregnant when she/partner used perfect withdrawal and Plan B in 24hr?

Very little chance

Conception
Tubal ligation by itself has a failure rate of 1in300 to 500. Ablation, while not a method of birth control destroys the lining where the pregnancy would implant. Unless your ablation/tubal ligation was done less than 6 weeks ago I would guess the chance is more like 1in500 or less. I tell my patients no unprotected sex until 6 weeks out from tubal ligation.

what is the possability and risks of pregnancy occuring after both a tubal ligation with a uteral ablation! how rare is it and can it occur twice?

Much less than 1%

Tubal_ligation
Endometrial ablation is NOT a sterilization procedure and cannot be relied on for pregnancy prevention, though it probably reduces the risk. Most methods of tubal ligation have failure rates of less than 1%, so one can get pregnant after having both and lightning can strike twice!

Dr. Megan Bird answered:

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

Possible....

Tubal_ligation
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.

I had an endometrail ablation and a tubal ligation about 2years ago, can i still get pregnant?

Tubal ligation?

Endometrial_ablation
If you have had your tubes tied, you should not be able to get pregnant (unless it was done incorrectly).
