Spotting After Ablation
I had an ablation almost 2 yr ago I recently started spotting and me and my husband don't use protection?
No tubal?: Endometrial ablation is very good for treating heavy periods. Its generally not done without also doing a tubal ligation. If you didn't have a tubal ligation, you should use protection as pregnancy is not recommended. Not all women stop their period all-together like you did. Some women still have lighter periods. Those women that do stop having periods can begin having them again. ...Read more

Had an ablation 2 years ago with no periods or spotting for two years is it common to be spotting now?
Possible, unlikely: As you know, the ablation scars uterine tissue preventing bleeding. Sometimes these scars break down or fibroids are growing in the uterine wall behind them. If you have had no bleeding for 9 years, and now spotting, see your gynecologist. It may just be random, occasional spotting or something that will cause more bleeding. An ultrasound will probably be helpful to see what is going on. Good luck ...Read more

GYN exam: Given your tubal ligation and ablation, pregnancy is very doubtful.

You may also require a transvaginal ultrasound. ...Read more

A woman must see an experienced OB to know. ...Read more
