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.

It depends.: Did you have a tubal ligation or your partner a vasectomy prior to the Novasure? It does not prevent pregnancy. Symptoms could be from the hormonal fluctuation of ovulation, something GI related or both. ...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.

Minimal chance: Tubal ligation has a failure rate of 1 in 300 due to tubal fistula and if you have a positive pregnancy test the pregnancy would most likely be in the tube. This may also be elevated prolactin or a thyroid issue. Since tomorrow is Monday, I would call your physician and request testing including a blood pregnancy test for your symptoms. ...Read more
