Could I be pregnant at 43 after a tubal ligation and a uterine ablation?

Could I be pregnant at 43 after a tubal ligation and a uterine ablation?

Yes, but not likely: 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. ...Read more

Uterine Ablation (Definition)

Uterrine ablation is a procedure used to destroy the thin lining of the uterus that bleeds each month. It is often destroyed with heat but can be done with freezing (cryoablation). Must be family complete. When performed for fibroid bleeding doesnt address the problem (fibroid) directly, may not work at all, and doesn't address the bulk symptoms often seen with ...Read more

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.

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: 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. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant after a tubal ligation and endometrial ablation? I've been having nausea, sore breasts and fatigue a lot lately.

Is it possible to get pregnant after a tubal ligation and endometrial ablation? I've been having nausea, sore breasts and fatigue a lot lately.

Hopefully not: 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! ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more

Period after endometrial ablation and tubal ligation what is the cause?

Not 100%: Endometrial ablations do not always stop the periods. It depends on whether the whole endometrium sloughed off or not. The tubal ligation has no effect at all on the period. Be well. ...Read more

Endometrial Ablation (Definition)

Endometrial ablation refers to procedures that use energy to damage or destroy the lining of the uterus that normally build up in preparation of pregnancy. If no pregnancy happens, the lining is shed as a period. There are several different types of ablation-thermal heat, radio frequency, and freezing. All of them are good options but some might be better in certain situations. ...Read more
